[Solved]Getting confused with routing vlans



  • I've configured a couple of vlans within pfsense. My switch is a linksys sfe2000p and I've been following the guide on https://www.highlnk.com/2014/06/configuring-vlans-on-pfsense/

    On the switch I set port E1 to be access port and untag VLAN ID 10.
    I get a dhcp address but I cannot ping the vlan gw or get out the internet.

    On port 2 where it is left as trunk port and vlan 10 tagged.
    I get dhcp address, I can ping the vlan gw and I can get out the internet.
    I get the wrong range of dhcp address but vlan gw and internet works. The IP I'm getting is the pfsense LAN interface that is connected to the switch and not the VLAN 10 range.

    I'm trunking all the vlans on port 24 already. I thought I'm supposed to be configuring the ports as access ports on E1?  My pc is plugged into E1 and I only want it allow access to vlan id 10 and not the others. Am I not doing it correctly?

    If you are getting DHCP it's not the VLANs.  You have good layer 2.

    You have firewall rule and/or NAT issues.  See the other thread.

    Note that rules permitting DHCP traffic on a pfSense interface are automatically added to interfaces with a DHCP server defined.  That's probably why DHCP is working but nothing else is.

    You're right. Turns out my firewall rule set only to allow any TCP so I was actually able to access the pfsense web configurator but nothing else.
