I am totally new to pfSense and was looking for some advice. I have recently received a Netgate XG-7100-1U and am looking to integrate this in to my network. Currently I have the following hardware:
- Netgate XG-7100-1U
- Netgear XS708T (10g managed switch)
- Unifi AP AC HD (x2)
- Unifi Cloud Key Gen 2
- Unifi Switch (US-16-150w)
- FreeNAS running on 4U Supermicro chassis
I was going to connect my devices:
Internet -> pfSense -> Netgear XS708t -> Unifi US-16-150w
I am wanting the FreeNAS server along with 3 computers connected to the Netgear (as all have 10g Intel nics) and the 2 Unifi AP’s connected to the Unifi US-16-150w switch (as this has PoE). However, I would like the FreeNAS server to be available to wireless clients that will be connected to the Unifi AP’s (mobile phones/tablets/laptops/Apple TV). I was planning on having pfSense do all the DHCP duties.
Is it ok to daisy chain both switches together or should I place them on separate ports of the pfSense (eth2 & eth3)?
I don’t think I will need VLANs as I want all devices to communicate with each other.
