NAT



  • I have given IP 172.28.1.13 to my Laptop with gateway 172.28.1.12 connected to PF Sense LAN card. In PF Sense LAN IP 172.28.1.12  and on WAN 10.50.14.3 with gateway 10.50.0.1. WAN card is connected to my internal network with Gateway 10.50.0.1. I want that 10.50.14.28 should appear when traffic leave from PF Sense WAN. Kindly help.

    Why would you not just make pfsense wan that 10.50.14.28 ip then vs the 10.50.15.3 address???

    What mask are you using on this 10.50 network???  from showing a 14 having a gateway of 0 your talking atleast a /20

    For what possible reason would you need such a large segment for???  If I had to guess your prob running a /8 even… WHY??

    I have to wonder why you would even be natting to another rfc1918 network??



  • I made WAN IP to 10.50.14.28. I am using /16. Now what to do to appear 10.50.14.28 for any traffic leaves?

    Any host you hit on the 10.50.0.0/16 network will see that the traffic originates from 10.50.14.28. So quite frankly, I've no idea what you're trying to ask or achieve. Neither does anyone else, judging from the outpouring of assistance you've received so far.

  • Hello Everyone,

    Sorry for the confusion. Let me explain my goal clearly.

    I have two WAN links terminated at my Router. Router has the internal network 10.50.0.0/16 and I can distribute the load on WANs based on IP address(Which I need to do for different departments )

    I want to place a PF Sense in my Internal network and want to create other 3 networks (of different department) behind it.

    Now I would like to do NAT for each network's traffic so every network will get the appropriate WAN and the respective IP address.

    Please let me know if you still have any confusion or questions.

    Thank you
