Basic routing help needed on WRAP.2C hardware
Using WRAP 2C with 1 lan and 2 wan interfaces.
I simply want it to route IP traffic where it logically should go.
1. Turned off NAT via System -> Advanced -> Disable Firewall
2. OPT1 interface is local 2.4ghz wi-fi with DHCP on.
3. WAN interface is for communication between pfSense units (backhaul).
DSL modem 10.0.0.1/8
wi-fi clients |
2.4ghz OPT1–------pfsense #1
10.1.0.1/16 WAN -----5.8ghz wireless ----------|
LAN 10.0.1.1/24 | (will try to put OLSR on WAN in the future)
2.4ghz OPT1--------pfsense #2 |
10.2.1.1/24 | |
10.1.0.2/16 WAN-----5.8ghz wireless ----------|---(etc)
As of now, I'm trying to get pfSense#1 routing between the local wi-fi clients on OPT1 and the DSL modem on LAN.
Pings that work so far:
"dsl modem"<-->"pfSense#1 lan and opt1"
"wi-fi client"-->"pfSense#1 opt1", however "pfSense#1" cannot ping wi-fi client.
No Pings between dsl modem and wi-fi client.
What do I set the Gateways to on each of the interfaces?
When I enable OLSR on the WAN 5.8ghz ports, the path to the Internet could be anywhere, should I then set gateways to the WAN/OLSR interface ip?
Any suggestions are appreciated,
Your DSL-Modem needs a static route back to the subnet of the wificlients with the pfsense as gateway or you have to use nat for your wificlients.
If I turn NAT back on and keep the same IP ranges, I'm guessing I would need to set something up in the NAT translation 1:1?
Create an outbound Nat rule for the wifi subnet that only applies for the destination of the modemrouter. (firewall>nat, outbound tab)
LAN 10.2.0.1/24 * 22.214.171.124/32 * * * NO
…or you have to use nat for your wificlients.
I hope to avoid using NAT unless absolutely necessary.

I guess that means routing to 10.2.0.1. However, what about the wifi clients on pfSense#2 in ip range 10.2.1/24 ?
Thank you for the assistance,
You only were referring to the wifi clients accessing the dsl modem in your previous posts. Actually a lot a whole bunch of routes is needed at pfsense1, pfsense2 and the DSL modem if the Modem should be accessable from everywhere.
