Redirect internal IP address



  • I want to be able to redirect email traffic on my pfsense to another local network connected to a different interface on the pfsense. When a user, who is connected to a network off of the pfsense, makes a request to my exchange server (e.g. mail.dog.com) it resolves to the public IP (e.g. 4.4.4.4). I understand this part is working the way it should.

    I have the network that exchange is connected to accessible on a different interface on the pfsense. I want mail.dog.com to resolve to the private ip address of 192.168.1.1.

    I have been trying to figure out how to do this but cannot get it right… Outbound NAT, firewall aliases, host overrides in the dns resolver. Am I looking in the right place to do this?



  • Solved - I think.

    I disabled the DNS resolver; made sure I had DNS entries in System > General Setup > DNS Servers; Enabled DNS Forwarder and entered the host I want to redirect in the host override.

    this is simple port forward, or inbound nat..
