Hello, as you can see, below I have attached a diagram of my home network and I have some concerns.

I want pfSense, which will run on a VM from the Proxmox server, to be the main router (Wan PPPoE, DHCP for all devices, to provide me with Internet for the Proxmox server for the rest of the virtual machines, and for Proxmox to be accessed by on any link of the switch, not just local as it works for me now).

The Proxmox server has a NIC with 4 gigabit ports, which is recognized from installation without the need for other settings, the motherboard NIC is disabled, so only the 4 will be main.

I want that after the pfSense is configured, I can forward the internet to the big server, Proxmox, and later through the switch to the rest, preferably all in the same network.

The problem is that I'm not very good at bridge in Proxmox and I haven't found a tutorial to my liking where I can understand something.

I specified some details about the devices in the diagram as well.

If anyone is doing quite well and has a similar or even larger setup, I would appreciate the help!
