OPT2 interface as switch port on LAN
I have WAN with static IP, OPT1 with dynamic IP, LAN connect to my notebook
now I installed OPT2 which must work as "one port switch port" on LAN, where I can connect my mail server without additional external switches

Then you need a crossover cable, though a straight cable would work if you have Gb nic's on both pfSense opt2 and the mail server.
Then you can bridge opt2 to Lan, though i would just make a lan2 for the mail server.
Hope it answer your question (if it was your question :))
yes, I have crossover cable and try to connect my server in such way, but can't reach my server
I enable Enable Optional 2 interface and Bridge with LAN
Type: DHCP (and interface gets address from pfSense)
may be I need define some rules on OPT2?
I add rule on OPT2:
* * * LAN net * *
now I can ping my mail server, but DNS server stoped
can someone tell what exactly I must to do?
thanks in advance,
[v] Enable Filtering Bridge
bridge with: LAN
rules on OPT2
* OPT2 net * * * *
* LAN net * OPT2 net * *
interesting (for me) was last line - plain Linux/Windows desktop works fine without it, but my server not, DNS server was not available for LAN and other connectivity problems …
may be someone of senior comrades can comment it and my configuration also
thanks to all!
