So I am planning to run Pfsense as my router at my house. I plan to put pfense on a virtualbox vm, while the host machine is running Windows 10. Then have the host machine directly connected to the modem.
My host machine has have 5 NIC ports. 1 from the motherboard, and 4 ports from a NIC card. The mobo nic is plugged into the modem, and the first port on the NIC card is assigned as LAN, and the other 3 ports are assigned as optional interfaces. In virtualbox all ports are assigned as corresponding bridge adapters.
Does the network traffic going in and out of the host OS bypass the VM instance of Pfsense or does Pfsense intercept everything? If in the current setup the host OS is bypassing pfsense, is it possible for me to route all the host traffic through Pfsense vm?
