Hello everyone and happy new year,
I’m new to networking and pfSense trying to implement the following schematic with 3 kinds of different devices on LAN:
A. Device like 192.168.1.10 - able to reply to port forward service 2404 to both WAN’s - reply to the WAN that took the request from. Default Internet WAN1.
B. Device like 192.168.1.20 - able to reply to port forward service 182 to both WAN’s - reply to the WAN that took the request from. Default Internet WAN2.
C. Simple LAN devices, default Internet WAN2.
To be more simple i think is better to follow a schematic like that, having both WAN’s and the LAN to one firewall and have single gateway on LAN.
Can anyone give me some tips from experience how i can set the different priorities to achieve something like that ?
For example, in System-> Routing there is default gateway option or automatic. If i set there default gateway, what does this mean ? Is it priority one and always respected?
Then if i add a firewall rule to LAN, so a device have to reply using WAN1, does this mean that port forwarding will not respected if requested from WAN2?
In NAT Port forward section, there advanced -> and then Gateway selection. Is this only for the port forward overriding the default gateway ?
Also what about static routing and outbound… ? So many settings i don’t know what is prioritized for each interface even i saw the documentation for these topics.
Any help and guideline will be much appreciated. Thank you.
