Turn pfsense into a pure router problem !



  • Good evening ,
    to make the pfsense a pure router (without the firewall function by) the doc tells you to set the option to disable packet filter, but always when I do that devices on the LAN can not send or receive Internet packages.
    If I see the ping option in pfsense, I can verify that it (the pfsense itself) with this internet normally.

    Any hint or solution?

    Thank you .

    You are turning off NAT when you do that.

    Do all your LAN devices have routable IP addresses?



  • Sorry i dont understand what you mean about routable IP .

    In my Pfsense wan is ADSL with ppoe method  and LAN is 192.168.2.1(Pfsense) and  devices are 192.168.2.2  - 192.168.2.254

    Thanks for reply

    The non-RFC1918 IPs. None of those you mentioned. You need something to NAT those eventually, pfSense or a box in front of its WAN. Kinda don't get the purpose of what you trying to do.

    :o  You don't understand a basic element of networking and you're trying to disable your firewall.  I'm with the other guys in asking what the heck you're really trying to do.
