General Questions / Re: PFSENSE with 1 wan and multiple LAN

Thank you very much sir!

I have a few connectivity issues with the internet. a couple times everyday for several minutes i don't have internet access. I don't know if it is a down dsl service, a rule or something else, i just don't have internet at my devices for a few minutes. How i can troubleshoot this problem? where do i search in order to figure out whats happening?

Thanks in advance again!

Thank you very much for the info!

I forgot to mention that my isp does not provide me a static ip, if I use a ddns service will I be able to do a vpn? At the certificate creation can I use the ddns domain instead of an ip?

Do I have to consider something else with a ddns configuration?

Thanks again!

ok and a final question. I would like to access the lan network when i am not at home.(office or vacations)

How i will achive that? i guess with VPN, can you give me some resources to read how to do that?

also can i allow a specific device from OPT1 to have full access at LAN and pfsense? I have an ipad connected via wifi from opt1 and i would like to manage some of my servers that are currently at lan.

The ipad gets an address frop OPT1 dhcp, can i create a MAC address rule to access LAN only from my ipad regardless the ip it has?

i did this, is that correct?

Also something more tricky, at the same physical server where the pfsense VM runs i have a several more VMs that i would like to join them at my network (LAN or OPT1 depending on the VM)

How i can do that?

thanks again for the help

I changed the rules like above and everything works like a charm.

Is that a recommended config or it works just from luck?

after a little experiment i did the following at the attachment.

I can ping from a client connected to opt1 but it seems cant resolve addresses. ping got as result unreachable host.

well i tried the following:

Created new interface OPT1

set interface ipv4
setup dhcp for OPT1

add firewall rule allow ipv4 * opt1 net  wan net 

My client gets an ip automatically, gateway, dns

I don't have internet access, also i cant ping from client to

The client is connected via powerline.

any ideas?

Hello everyone, i am newbie to networking and stuff but i have a few questions.

I have setup pfsense running as VM. I have a physical server running proxmox, 1 intergrated NIC used as proxmox management port and a pcie card with 4 nics used for pfsense. I have created 4 bridges one by one with each physical NIC. Inside pfsense i got 1 WAN and 1 LAN interface(remain 2 unused ports). I use a modem and a ppoe setup at wan port.

At the lan port i have plugged in an unmanaged switch. Everything works fine, i have dhcp and internet to all devices connected at the switch.

My question is about an access point i got. I would like to isolate this access point.

My main lan network with the switch is

I would like to isolate the access point to a network like and have internet access.

Also i would like to isolate another test pc to a network like and have internet access.

How i can do that and how the wiring goes?

After playing around with pfsense i have a few more questions, i have a ps4 and a PC connected via powerline, i would like to isolate these devices to "another" network for security reasons but i will need these devices to have internet access. How i can do that? can i create another bridge nic and asign it to pfsense as another lan port?

Can you guide me with a few security tips in order to setup pfsense?

If i need to create other VMs and connect them to my main network where i will bridge them?

Wiring looks good.  Both NICs are in bridged mode, or whatever Proxmox calls it?

yes that's right, they are in bridge mode.

Have you gone through this?

I'm a VMware guy so I don't have any special knowledge about this type of installation.

yes! this is exactly the setup i followed!

my considerations are now about the settings of the pfsense and the wiring.

Is the above wiring correct?

ISP's modem/router bridge mode --> pfsense WAN

pfsense LAN ----> switch ---> all my devices connected to switch including the managment port of proxmox (the physical PC where pfsense is running)

So i created a VM inside proxmox and assigned 2 hardware NICs as bridge with VirtIO to pfsense, one for wan and the other for lan.

I plugged in my laptop to the nic that i assigned to pfsense and after i logged in to pfsense web interface i checked "Disable hardware checksum offload".

How i should proceed in order to configure pfsense as my home router?

Is that possible and safe if pfsense is running from a virtual enviroment?

My isp's modem/router should i turn it to bridge mode and connect it with the wan assigned port at pfsense? (i guess PPOE setup then?)

Hello everyone, I am newbie to solutions like pfsense and i would like to experiment and learn more about networking. I have a PC running proxmox VE with several VMs and an PCIE card Intel Pro 1000PT Quad Port 1GbE PCIe-x4 RJ45.

Can i create a VM and install pfsense on it in order to act as a router? Can i use it as a home production router? Is it safe?

My current hardware is an ISP modem/router, a proxmox server machine, a NAS server Machine, a gaming PC, a PS4 and another PC.

My network topology at the moment is something like above :

I use powerlines (3x tp link TL-PA4010P because i rent the house that I stay and the owner doesn't allow me to use UTP cables.)

How i can setup a proper and secure network for my devices? I suppose i should buy a switch, can you recommend me some switches?

My first concern is to secure my nas server(freeNAS os).

Thanks in advance,
