comment Unable to access IP addresses within my own country. pfSense showing packets hit WAN
What country are we talking about and what ISP? Also, have you packet sniffed on the WAN interface to see if the traffic is even making it to the WAN interface?

comment DHCP scope not being created or created incorrectly
@ChrisKennedy Expecting there to be a "Experts Only" warning on the signup page is a bit simplistic. The FAQ / Help page explains that there's a minimum barrier to enter that involves searching for answer first, and reasonable business practices (including knowing knowing basic subnetting). Wether or not you have others in your company who's job is one thing or another, and wether or not something is your job or not is completely inconsequential here. In the future if you put a minimum amount of effort into solving your problem before asking a question you will be received much better.

comment How can I send non-default log files to remote rsyslog server?
StackExchange is most certainly not "new documentation." That's not only incorrect from SE's own explanation of itself, that's a terrible idea conceptually. StackExchange's point, at least SO/SU/SF, is to answer specific questions for specific problems. My linked Q/A does that. For more information about the why and wherefore, you need to read the documentation. And no, you don't need to know a "considerable amount about the internal working of *nix". SF has a minimum barrier for effort and the expectations you've set for an answer are bordering on that barrier.

In my experience the answer is no.

@trueCamelType local3 is a generic syslog facility that has whatever meaning you feel like assigning to it. It's just generic and open to whomever to assign whatever meaning you want in your own log flow: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syslog#Facility

comment How can I send non-default log files to remote rsyslog server?
I recommend breaking out configuration files for each major thing that you're sending logs for. Some prefer config files for a full application stack, others for each major service... it's up to you. There's no truly wrong answer. Whatever is repeatable and understandable to your workflow. Just document it, and better yet code it in your configuration management engine of choice (e.g. Puppet, Chef, etc.). =)

Added a tag, but I'm oh so tempted to rewrite this to clean up the awful formatting.

comment WatchGuard, external IP, different port
This question is being voted for closure because the author does not show a level of technical understanding or appropriate due diligence in researching the topic that the community judges as being a minimum barrier to participate.
