ESXI with pfSense router



  • Hello!
    I'm making my first install of ESXI with pfSense as a router. I followed many documentation, all saying pretty much the same thing for the installation.
    I have 3 ip for my server: the Server ip, the local ip, and the fallback ip. I made a new network (LAN), without any physic adapter.
    I linked the pfSense to the two network.
    I've set the  WAN network with the fallback ip, with a /30 mask.
    I've add a route to my server gateway (my server ip, as x.x.x.1/32), and then set the default gateway.
    After, I've unlock my firewall, for testing purpose I have allowed all connection over all protocols.
    But still, my other vm can't access the internet "network unreachable".

    I tried the same thing but at the creation of pfSense vm, I set the WAN adapter's MAC addr to the Fallback IP MAC addr.

    Can't see why I can't have internet on my vms, can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

    For information I'm using pfSense 2.3-RELEASE with ESXi 6.0.0_U2 (64BITS)
    I join you the result of my netstat -rn. The "163.xx.xx.1" ip is the gateway for internet, the "212.xx.xx.51" is my fallback ip, and the 00:50:56:xx:xx:xx is the MAC addr of the fallback ip.

    Thank you all ;)
