Private IP is not hiden
i have pfsense. and NAT is running ok. but, few minutes back, i tested my configuration with some internet page, who offers a firewall test. and everything is ok except that private/ internal IP (192*) obviously is not hidden. :O
i cant believe it. afaik, the NAT hides private/ internal IPs from public… :S
what i can do? i something i must specialy set in pfsense or what?
im really concerned,
How about showing us the page that is showing you the ip.
sullrich: you just overtaked me :P
i really dont get it :S
I ran all the tests and it only saw my public IP.
Can you take a screenshot?

But sites like that love to make you believe you're somehow insecure and then are more than willing to sell you something to fix that "problem".
Personally, I could care less if somebody knows what my private IP's are, what does it matter? I use 10.0.64.0/21, subnetted into several /24's.
This does not necessarily mean your firewall is malfunctioning or improperly configured. The method we used will sneak past most firewalls. Why? Because we use Java to grab the information and then pass it on to the server (Notice how everything ran without prompting you?) "
blah, silly me… :)
thank you both, sullrich and cmb, for answers!
