IP addressing Wan And Lan Ports
« on: June 07, 2017, 11:55:06 am »
Hello , I am a super Noob here, I am wondering what addresses to assign to the WAN and LAN Ports if i want them each static.

the range i would like them in would be 192.168.0.x  sort of format, I have no idea what to use as an address  for the Wan and Lan Ports.

is it a range that i use for the two IP addresses? I am completely clueless with the addressing.

Thank You Very Much  :)

Well your wan IP would have to be a static on the network your connecting the wan too.. Normally this is the internet!  Or if behind some other router already - whatever network that router is using would determine what network you would have to put on the wan of pfsense behind it.

As to your LAN - use whatever network you want!  In the rfc1918 space, 192.168/16, 10/8, 172.16/12 or any public space that has been assigned to you, etc..  Just use the default of pfsense would most likely be fine - unless that is what your wan network is.. 192.168.1/24
