Please Help!! Multiple interfaces, only connectivity through LAN



  • OK,
    So I put together a router and installed PFsense. I am a newbie. Thought I would have been able to figure this out.

    I have five interfaces they are assigned as followed:

    Fxp0 = Wifi (optional)
    RE3 = Wan
    RE3 = Webservers (optional)
    RE2 = LAN
    RE1 = Microsoft Workstation (optional)

    I have great connectivity on the Lan. I have divided the interfaces into Subnets, assigining the following IP addresses to the interfaces:

    Wifi (FXP0)= 192.168.3.1
    Webservers = 192.168.4.1
    Microsoft Workstation = 192.168.2.1

    I have enable DHCP server on the the above interfaces. I also have written a rule concerning the WAN interface to pass any to any with any protocol. This should open me up. I also have assigned the reverse rule on the other interfaces. (EX: on the Microsoft interface Pass any from any using protocol any) I believe the problem has to do with the Gateway that I have left blank in the IP Configuration on the interface form.

    So from here I am lost. PLEASE HELP!



  • Ok,
    Some more information. I attempting NAT and that did nothing. So Again confused. PLEASE Help!

    I have included a picture of my Routing Configuration.

  • @oracleofmacon:

    I also have written a rule concerning the WAN interface to pass any to any with any protocol. This should open me up.

    You probably don't want to do that. You only need rules on the WAN tab for services on the LAN, etc that you want to be open to the Internet. Say a web server. If you create a port-forward, these will be auto-created.

    As for LAN working and not the OPT interfaces- check your NAT, Outbound. If you have enabled AON, you need to copy the auto-created rule, changing the subnet to the subnet of the OPT interface.
    The firewall rules on your OPT interfaces should be similar to the default LAN rule, but with OPT1 subnet instead of LAN subnet, etc.
