PFsense, Cisco and VM



  • Hi there..
    I'm new to networking so forgive me for any dumb question.

    I want to setup a Cisco layer 3 switch for internal routing, with a Virtual PFsense on two VMesxi host for redundancy (CARP)

    1 - I got the Carp working
    2 - I got the internal routing working (Cisco switch)
    3 - I could only get the  vlan 3 to connect to the internet.

    here is my configuration

    CISCO Core switch
    Vlan 3                            Vlan 12                      Vlan 15
    172.17.2.1/22              172.16.1.1                172.16.8.1            IProute 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.17.2.250

    Port 48 on Core switch connects to port2 on Dell server that has Virtual PFsense

    PFsense Virtual IP Lan    172.17.2.250

    I try dot1q trunk encapsulation on port 48 did not work
    I changed to access mode I was able to connect to the internet, but as mention before, only vlan 3

    I really would appropriate any help on this



  • Hi,

    Try to add static route in pfsense for the other subnet, so that pfsense knows to route traffic as reply to those concern subnet.
