Adding a second bridge for PFSense Router


New Member

I currently have the default single bridge in my PVE (vmbr0)

I would like to add a second bridge which will be controlled by a PFSense router for the subnet
On this router I want to put the WAN side to (Main Gateway) and the LAN side to to handle everything on a new bridge vmbr99

Is this possible? Basically I want to VPN the xx.xx.10.0/24 subnet using the PFSense router.

Where do I start?

Yes, a bridge doesn't need to be bridged to a physical NIC. Create your vmbr99, create a pfsense VM and then add one vNIC to vmbr0 and one vNIC to vmbr99. Other guests then could be added to vmbr99 and use the pfsense as the gateway.
A bit late to this thread. I'm trying to build something similar.
What is the simplest way to access the web UI on the LAN in this setup ?
