I have installed pfsense in
VirtualBox. I'm trying to access its configuration through my windows' browser but I cannot.
In the virtual machine's properties, I have tried to configure the WAN interface as bridge and as NAT, but none of them works. The details are below:
I am connected to my gateway routher through the Wireless adapter, so I have not connected the ethernet interfaze. My IP address in windows is:
192.168.1.34 / 24.
PfSense - WAN interface as NAT
I start PfSense. The WAN interface takes an IP address from
DHCP, that address is
10.0.2.15 / 24. As you can see, that address is outside the windows' network, I do not understand why the DHCP service gives PfSense that IP.
Anyway, with the above address, I can ping both the reouter and the windows host, but I cannot do the same from windows to PfSense.
I have tried to set up the IP manually with an IP address that is inside the windows' subnet, for example
192.168.1.50 / 24. If I do that, I can't ping neither windows nor the router, and of course the same ocurrs if I trty to ping from windows to pfsense.
PfSense - WAN interface as bridge
With this configuration,
DHCP does not give any IP to the PfSense's WAN interface, I have to put it manually. With thios configuration, I cannot ping PfSense from windows to PfSense, and the same for the opposite.
I have tried another configuration:
I have connected the ethernet interface to the router, and the PfSense adapters as bridge.
I can ping from pfSense to windows and to the router, but I cannot ping from windows to pfSense.
