VLAN Bridging
« on: January 06, 2018, 07:08:09 pm »
Hi all!

I just hit the wall :o...

Is it possible to hava "transparent" vlan bridge?

From my ISP I have "internet" (untagged) and a VOIP vlan(855)

Since I lack a switch to separate the voip vlan i figured I could bridge the vlan on my wan to a vlan on my opt1

But I just cant this to work.

I cant set any IP on any of the vlan interfaces since the my SIP box needs to get the IP from the ISP

Is this even doable or do I need to get my self another switch :)

Regards
André

Answer to self

I did get it to work, by creating firewall rules in between the interfaces in the bridge (allow all any).

But according to the pfsense docs:

A bridged interface can filter traffic without being involved in the IP layer of the connection.

By creating a FW rule, I opinion is that the IP Layer is involved somehow?
