Is pfsense for me?



  • I am looking at pfsense for a firewall/router solution and would like to know if it would be what I am looking for. I currently use a ipcop box but having problems with my mail servers in the dmz zone with rdns. I have pppoe adsl with a /29 static ip block.
    would pfsense work for this type setup?
    adsl modem in bridged mode-> firewall/router -> 1st switch with 2 servers using 4 static ips, 2nd switch with several pcs sharing 1 static ips.

    any info would help
    Thanks Dave



  • Can you provide some more info about your pppoe WAN? Do you have login credentials for this? Is your WAN IP part of that /29 subnet? I think it should work but would need some more infos to make sure.



  • ok,
    I login isp with user pass and they provide a ip block /29 with 8 ips 5 usable ips

  • This should be doable using "proxyARP" virtual IPs then, maybe even type "other". Just test it using the live cd. You don't have to install anything for evaluation purpose.
