    Firewall rules?


    My router was destroyed by a surge from a near-by lighting strike.

    Now I'm setting up a pfsense box, it just been a pain in my ***.
    I got my server back up and running, but I can't get my parents Videophone working. *They're deaf* It works fine if you connect it directly to the modem, but when going through the pfsense box it just doesn't work properly, no incoming calls or outgoing. I screwed with the port fowarding and it's picky and works sometimes.

    On the d-link router we just enable dmz.




    On pfsense I set up an opt1 interface and rules as shown in pfsense docs.
    The network:
    Lan 192.168.0.0/24
    DMZ 192.168.1.0/24


    Code:
    ------Prot-------S-----------Port-----DEST.--------Port----Gateway
    Block--*--------*-------------*------LAN net--------*---------* 
    Pass---*----DMZ net-----------*-----!LAN net-------*----------*
    What am I missing here?



    If this doesn't work is there a way to bypass the firewall for DMZ and only have it firewall the Lan?

    I don't know pfsense but are you sure that outgoing/reply packets are MASQ? Is anything in the DMZ blocked? Just some of the things I would look at first.

    That's the thing I'm so confused, whats this MASQ?

    The VP200 by sorenson is very picky of what routers it wants to work on, and I don't even know why. I'm trying to make DMZ open, actually I don't even want to firewall this piece of ****** equipment.
