Mark,

Thanks very much for the reply. We should be able to accomplish this
using this method as well.

Re: [pfSense] Restoring at remote location before deployment

2017-05-18 Thread Steve Yates
We did something similar when setting up our data center routers.  
Added a public subnet on the LAN side of our own pfSense, NATted to the 
Internet.  It works because of the NAT so the public IPs don't leave our 
office.  The data center routers had another public subnet on their LAN side 
(since we have a /25 block routed to us), so as I recall there were a few 
routing configuration changes to ensure traffic for those IPs was routed back 
inside our office and didn't go out to the Internet.  But for just one public 
IP that isn't necessary.

So I suppose a workaround would be to put the WAN gateway IP in your 
own pfSense and the new router would talk to it.

I do the same, build up the system in the home office for testing.

I've created a separate environment within the home office that allows 
for the unit under test to hit the internet after getting natted to the 
home office's ip addr.

I do the same, build up the system in the home office for testing.

I've created a separate environment within the home office that allows
