Pfsense to forward traffic



  • Hello Community

    I have configured my pfsense with a public ip address and a private ip address. Naturally, my PC's use the private address as the gateway to communicate with each other. However, can someone let me know how configure pfsense to forward traffic from the private address to the public..

    Basically, I want the PC's to able to connect to internet via pfsense from the private addresses .. 192.168.2.0/24

    Thank you

  • Isn't this how pfSense comes by default (ie NAT enabled)?

    What is your actual problem? What you described in your original post should work with a default config, ie outbound NAT from LAN to WAN.

    Yeah that is out of the box, clickity clickity your up in running with that configuration in like 3 minutes with pfsense.

    You did something wrong in the setup.. Swapped your wan and lan interfaces?  Put a gateway on your lan?  Went in and turned of NAT on purpose?  Pfsense is designed to work out of the box no anything special to configure to get it up and running.

    Take a dhcp on your wan, hand out dhcp on your lan - bing bang zoom your natting that private to your public IP, routing and firewalling..



  • It's also hard to help when there are no details whatsoever.  Symptom of your problem?  WAN/LAN interface details?  Firewall rules?
