I have a PFSENSE installation, which I have just added a new physical interface to for a new requirement 'DIGI'. A third party has installed a DrayTek router on our network which has their equipment behind. They require external access to the Draytek.

Can I bridge the new Interface I have just installed and then apply the external IP to the Draytek and if so how do I go about doing it?

The images attached are my guess approaches to doing it..

Am I getting you right: pfSense connects to the WAN and has ext. IP like DrayTek sits behind pfSense and they need to access it from WAN over on some ports? – Mose Feb 24 '12 at 17:35
