Install pfsense in a datacenter
pfsense installation in datacenter (config questions)
I have been using pfsense for a couple of years at home but now i am placing a server in a datacenter with some virtual machines on it and have some questions.
I was thinking to work with a wan, lan and dmz interface but i got for starters 2 public ip adresses and could ask more of needed which i will.
The mail from where i am going to install the server and pfsense box stated the following.
I reserved 2 prublic addresses for you (for starters) one for your firewall (wan side) and one for your virtual machine. What i find strange that they are in the same range so i can't work with a dmz …
How would i go configuring this ? Any help or a good link appreciated .. (1:1 nat mapping ? ) or something else ? And if so don't you need an actual fysical interface for every ip ?
Gateway: 18.104.22.168 - Subnet: 255.255.255.128
thanks in advance
Could the solution be virtual ip's and one to one nat ? (did some research)

yes you can create a virtual IP and then 1:1 NAT it to your internal IP. Don't forget to add firewall rules to allow traffic on the ports you need (80, 25 etc). I have done it this way and it works.
thanks for your reply
