VMware Workstation 11 pfsense install



  • I have a desktop machine running Windows and I was able to install successfully install pfsense.

    I have 2x Intel LAN on my motherboard. One would be connected to the modem and the other would be connected to my router.

    My goal is to have the internet go through one of the ports and into WAN for pfsense.

    How do I setup the other one so that it can provide internet to the router? What VMware settings for the second adapter

    Also do I do a third adapter to provide the internet to the Windows host?

    Thanks

    Do you still need help with this?  i have already done it and its perfect!!



  • Can you post your setup. I tried this and failed badly. I have one pc that runs win7 and run vm wrkst 11 on it that has pfsense as host installed on it.
    I have intel Pro server dual nic and chose bridge on both vmware nics but I could not get comcast ip in pfsense. My win7 pc would get the ip.
    I got it once but then i couldn't access the web interface of pfsense. My plan is also to browse the web and use this win7 box as pc on lan but behind firewall.

    The link btw only addresses accessing pfsense but not setting it up as firewall as there is no two nics and Nat won't work for wan ip.
