but i actualy dont know where my answer lies, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, i would appreciate it.
i have a pfSense 0.96.4 as my firewall. inside my network are 3-4 hosts, and as expected, they have no trouble accessing the internet (via the pfSense).
one host in particular tho, is a router (linux, FC4, and has no trouble routing in or out). as mentioned before, this host has no trouble accessing the net thru the pfSsense box... however, hosts behind it cannot access the net. here is a diagram:http://www.dfwlp.com/~jhorne/pics/network/Troubleshooting-Routing-20051220.jpg
i forgot to label EUROPA... its ip is 192.168.125.80. in the diagram, DEVROUTER is the router in question. the hosts listed above it can access any host on the physical inside network (which, is any 192.168.125.0/26 host).
of of my networking friends recommended to take a look at the ACL on the interfaces, that by default the behavior of BSD would not allow anything other than the local network outbound. so, if i need to backend another network (or networks) thru my pfSense, what is the best way to go about this?
i have already taken a look at the rules->LAN page, added 172.16.125 network, but that didnt do the trick. anyone have some advice for me here?
