pfSense – Port Forwarding
If you have a webserver and etc. etc. on your network and want to setup a Port Forward, then on a normal router you will just have to choose Port forwarding probably under services. In pfSense it is a little different but have so many amazing options! I was about to get mad when i was trying to figure out how i could make a port forward! but in the end i figured it out and it is so simple when you just know.
to add a new Port Forward click on the icon to the right with a + on it. And you should see the picture below on your screen now. i already have entered the information i want. (just an example) Interface: If you want to make a Port Forward from LAN > WAN then choose WAN as your interface Protocol: in most case you want to choose TPC/UPD and i case i accidentally made a mistake here to choose TCP but i think you will figure it out anyway. Source: Leave this as default unless you now what you are doing. Destination: Just leave the destination as default. Destination port range: You can choose with port your are forwarding to the wan. in this case i want to use port 22. Redirect target IP: enter you LAN IP here. Redirect target port: As standard SSH is going through port 22 but in this case i already use port 22 and have set SSH to go through port 48 instead. and then just redirected the port to go through 22 on the wan interface. Description: Put a description here, you can choose what you want. leave the rest as default and click save.
And remember to click Apply Change. The port should now be forwarded and open to the outside world you can use this tool to see if it is working.
