Pfsense add route
Configuring pfsense router for networking
I’d like to build a pfSense route that sends traffic out the physical WAN port rather than the PPPoE WAN port. I’d like to communicate with the web server on my DSL modem, which will enable me to see the latest sync rate and SnR margins. Since packets bound for the modem are sent via the PPPoE tube, the modem is unaware of them.
My pfSense router is in charge of setting up my ISP’s PPPoE link over DSL. The default route sends packets out over the PPPoE link when a computer on the LAN needs to send packets to the internet. Those packets are sent over the ethernet cable to my DSL modem, wrapped in a PPPoE header. They are then redirected to their ISP and the rest of the internet.
I can ping and search the modem’s web interface perfect if I connect the modem to my desktop PC instead of the pfSense PC. The IP address of the modem is 192.168.0.254, and it listens on port 8080. From my PC, I can also packet trace the activity:
You can see my computer sending out an ARP request for the modem’s MAC address (the Ovislink). The modem responds with its IP address, the echo stops, and I receive a response. When I connect to the modem’s web port, I get the following information:
Pfsense part 3: controlling routes
We switched from a WatchGuard firewall to pfSense recently. We’ve almost gotten it to work the way we want it to, but there’s one more thing we can’t seem to get to work. We have two network segments: one for computers and the other for our phone system. Each is on their own subnet and uses different interfaces to connect to the pfSense router. On the “phone segment,” we’d like to be able to monitor our phone system from client PCs on the “computer segment.”
Previously, we had a static route configured in the WatchGuard configuration that told the router how to route between the different subnets. I’m trying to do something similar with Gateways and Static Routes on the pfSense router.
A vendor set up the phone section some time ago. I’m not sure why they wanted to divide the network into two subnets (the 10.18.0.0/16 subnet and the 10.1.10.1/30 subnet). I’d like to have it on one phone, but I’m not an expert on VoIP solutions, and the system is up and running, so there’s no need to adjust it now.
Pfsense setting multiple static wan ip addresses / using
I just noticed that your PFsense system is connected to your corporate network. Asymmetric routing to and from the external network is possible as a result of this. Put the PFSense box in its own DMZ and configure the routing as defined.
Thank you so much!
Last but not least,
All works fine when adding routes to external networks from the LAN.
The final issue is that this route does not function from client-vpn.
I attempted to link to the office LAN from home, but the static route failed.
How can I include this path in the client vpn network as well? (192.168.99.x) is an IP address that can be found on the Internet.

Routers are divided into two categories by network experts: software and hardware. Hardware routers are finished goods that are produced in businesses. Software implementations are a set of programs or pre-built operating system assemblies that can be installed on nearly any modern machine or server platform. It is sometimes important to provide Internet connectivity to machines on the local network. Consider using pfSense to configure routing — port forwarding.
PfSense is a FreeBSD-based software distribution for configuring a router, firewall, or both at the same time. This operating system can be mounted on virtually any computer or server. The ability to solve tasks using a web-based interface is a core feature of pfSense.
