Unable to Port Forward
Hi there, I have tried everything for the last 2 days but I am unable to Port Forward to my Exchange Server. If I cut out PFsense and go direct, everything works fine so I know my issue is sitting with my PFSense box. Any assistance would be appreciated, my network info below.
ADSL Router - IP: 192.168.20.1 - Port Forwarding (Port: 25,80,443) to IP: 192.168.20.130
PFSense Server - IP: 192.168.20.130 (WAN) - IP: 192.168.20.120 (LAN) - Is Running on Windows 7 on VMWare Player (2 NICs - Bridged Mode)
PF Rules: WAN TCP/UDP * * WAN address 443 (HTTPS) 192.168.20.80 443 (HTTPS)
WAN TCP/UDP * * WAN address 80 (HTTP) 192.168.20.80 80 (HTTP)
WAN TCP/UDP * * WAN address 25 (HTTP) 192.168.20.80 25 (HTTP)
Exchange Server - IP: 192.168.20.80 (Ports:25,80,443) Are Listening And Working Directly
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
What? You have WAN and LAN on the same subnet? Plus double-NATing with the crappy ADSL router?
Correct, I think. This is just a test enviroment, not a production one.
Your test environment is completely broken. You cannot have WAN and LAN on the same subnet. Also, any port forward done on pfSense needs to be done on the ADSL router as well. Similar "testing" is not useful at all, just a huge PITA.
Thanks for that, I am still new to all of this. I have taken your recommendation and done the following, is this better? I have also started looking into Reverse Proxy
Router - IP: 192.168.20.1 -> PF - Ports: 25:80:443 -> PFSense WAN - IP: 192.168.20.130 / LAN: 192.168.30.254 -> Exchange Server - IP: 192.168.30.80 (Listening: 25,80,443)
I managed to come right, thanks for you help.
