Ubuntu 14.04 + virtual box no connectivity + novice



  • Hi everybody,

    I am trying to configure pfsense I want to study it,

    I have got an Ubuntu OS on the host
    (IP 40.13.12.88  myrouter GW 40.13.12.80)

    On Virtual Box  Pfsense latest version 2.2.1 configured as follow
    Bridged (WAN: 40.13.12.99    myrouter GW 40.13.12.80)      Internal(LAN 192.168.1.1    Gatway 192.168.1.1)

    Then I have a windows 8.1 with network configured as internal with the following nic parameters
    (IP 192.168.1.8    pfsense GW 192.168.1.1    DNS 40.13.12.80 ) DNS I even tried google one 8.8.8.8 nothing does not go to Internet

    When I configured pfsense I choose as DNS my router or should I put the google one?
    Could you tell me which mistakes am I doing? Which steps should I try? I guess I told you everything if it is missing some information please ask.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help.



  • I tried something similar with virtualbox. What did you put in your upstream gateway? Go through the setup wizard again to check.  I think it should be you your router's ip:  40.13.12.80



  • Don't do it that way.  For your (bridged) WAN, use an IP on your private network like 192.168.2.1.  Then you for your Intnet1 LAN and Intnet2 DMZ (if you need a DMZ), use 10.0.0.0/24 and 172.16.1.0/24
