Check that your VMs have ip addresses on 10.x.x.x/24 (netmask 255.255.255.0) Set 10.x.x.11 (br0 ip address) as the default gateway of your VMs Enable ip forwarding on the physical host Enable SNAT with: iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.x.x.x/24 -o eth1 -j SNAT --to y.y.y.102
How would one achieve this functionality? vSwitches are just that, a switch, and nothing else, if you had a physical switch how would you expect it to do this? You wouldn't, you'd probably do it via round-robin DNS or an external load-balancer. Does the solution lie within the VM (pfsense) or at the ESXI networking level? How about within the ...
Define the bridge interface with eth0 as port Set the IP address on the bridge interface You will need the bridge-utils package installed (most likely is already there). Here's how you would configure this in /etc/network/interfaces. Restart the network service (or reboot the machine) auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual ...
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -s 10.x.x.x/24 ! -d 10.x.x.x/24 -j SNAT --to-source y.y.y.102 this must be changed to iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING --out-interface eth1 -j SNAT --to-source y.y.y.102 According to your first rule, only packages with destination to 10.x.x.x must be processed. So, what about traffic from outside to your network? (source ...
Are there any side effects or problems that could come of placing a modem into bridge mode in order to allow for easier access to internal services? Well, that's probably something you should talk with your ISP about. In general, though, it's a great idea. Double-NAT is evil.
Ideally (ie pedantically) speaking, your modem is always be in bridge mode, but many "modems" also have a router built in to handle NAT etc for you. It's also common enough to have that handled in a separate device, leaving the modem to do what it does best. As you've mentioned double natting, I'm assuming you have a dedicated router. I'm also going to ...
You need to remove IP address configuration from eth0, add eth0 to the bridge and then configure IP address on the br0 interface.
