I have installed PFsense inside VM and used two ethernet cards as descrivbed in their manual.

My WAN IP = My LAN IP = 192.1768.2.1

Now after installing I am getting only DOS type interface.

Now how can I divide internet to other VMs through PFsense

The internet is now working through PFsense but in Virtual machines only. I am confused now how my existing users can connect through pfsense. Currently config is 1) modem---router---my server (dhcp,dns,ad)----VM(pfsense)---VM2(gets internet from eth2 via pfsense)....\ ALl others users get ip from my server , i don't know how to pass them through pfsense – John Dec 17 '09 at 13:30
What you need to do is point your Default Gateway for the client machines to point to the LAN IP address of the PFSense box. – Mark Henderson Dec 17 '09 at 20:55
but when i ping that address from clients its not working , its on different subnet..... That ip only works if i join the VM machines with that adapter as their main adapter – John Dec 17 '09 at 23:18
You will need to make sure that the LAN address is on the same subnet as the rest of your network, and your WAN address needs to be on a different subnet. This also ensures that users can't just bypass the pfsense by entering the IP of the router into their gateway. – Mark Henderson Dec 18 '09 at 1:09
PFsense is getting WANIP from router which is same subnet as other computer on network like ,4,4 . My WANIP is The internal LANIP is gateway). Now the VM which is joined with PFsense Adapter got ip Now when i ping other lan) It says unreachable and if i ping from the computer with ip then it says unreachable. How can i make them same subnet – John Dec 18 '09 at 2:26
