Two LAN subnets need access both directions



  • I have 2 networks - pfsense network 172.16.20.0/24 and Lab network 172.16.40.0/24.

    I can ping each server, ping to the internet, and ping systems on the 172.16.20.0/24 network from both servers on the 172.16.40.0/24 network. But I cannot do the same the other direction. I would like to be able to have the same access either direction!!! Any help would be great!

    I am using the default gateway and dns for both networks.

    pfsense IP - 172.16.20.1 - DHCP Enabled on that network

    I have LAN fw rules added:

    IPv4 * 172.16.40.0/24 * * * * none    
    IPv4 * LAN net * * * * none   Default allow LAN to any rule 
    IPv6 * LAN net * * * * none   Default allow LAN IPv6 to any rule 
    IPv4 TCP LAN address * 172.16.40.0/24 * * none

    Added a route:

    172.16.40.0/24 WAN_DHCP - 172.16.10.1 WAN LAN 2 WAN Route

    And a manual outbound NAT rule:

    WAN  172.16.40.0/24 * * * WAN address * NO

    Thanks,
    Josh
