pfsense on esxi as vm-router

Hi there,

I have a vmware esxi server running with Hetzner in Germany.

With them I also have a /28 subnet.

Due to the way the hetzner network is setup I also have 2 standalone IP addresses.

1 IP goes to the physical server by DHCP/MAC address. The second standalone IP address goes to the pfsense wan interface also by DHCP/MAC address.

So far everything has been configured and setup.

What I need from you is to configure pfsense to have the extra /28 subnet configured on the OPT1 (DMZ) interface.

The DMZ interface itself should get the first available IP address in the subnet and all host connecting in this interface should receive an IP address within this network space by means of setting up a dhcp server on the DMZ.

Rules need to be created to allow each IP address within the DMZ to perform in and outbound HTTP/HTTPS/SSH/DNS queries.

When a DMZ client goes outside the firewall to the internet it must show it's own IP address not that of the pfsense.

In order to get this working it should not be necessary to use nat.

Within vmware I have configured 2 Ubuntu desktops for testing purposes. One is configured on the LAN interface and one on the DMZ.

You will get access to everything you need.

Kind regards,
