    pfSense - Accessing web server from outside

    Hello everyone,

    I am currently trying out pfSense (as recommended on here) and think it is great - much more feature packed than others I have looked at.

    My question is:

    I have a web server sat behind the pfSense firewall, and want to be able to access from "outside". My network setup is as follows: -> pfSense -> -> router. The is our LEA assigned range. The LEA have opened up a port so that when we type https://intranet.school.lea.sch.uk it goes through to

    I would like it so that when requests for the website come through to, they are forwarded through the pfSense to for example. Is this possible, and can it be done without having to implement NAT on the pfSense box?

    I have tried setting up a rule as follows:

    Protocol: IPv4 TCP
    Port: 80 (HTTP)
    Port: 80 (HTTP)

    But can't get it to work

    I hope that the above makes sense to someone.

    Many thanks.

    If you are using https as indicated in your post then the rule you have tried won't work.

    You might want to look at the reverse proxy option in pfSense.
