Normally there is nothing big on PVE Side to do. You have to check the PfSense Documentation: https://www.netgate.com/docs/pfsense/

Just install it, configure it for you needs and change the Gateway from your Nodes / VMs so that the Traffic will pass the PfSense.

I just dropped in an OPNsense VM on PVE to replace an EOL WatchGuard appliance at my small office. It works great! I found no docs on how to do this, I just pieced it together from several sources as I had need. I still have some loose ends to tidy up, but so far I'm very happy with it.
Good luck!

Hi.

I'm using Pfsense with PVE.

My small wiki (in russian) https://forum.netgate.com/topic/120102/proxmox-ceph-zfs-pfsense
Do you use pfSense as VM with only one physical network interface?
I'm also looking for a solution for my server with only one network interface and one public ip.
Is it possible to show us your /etc/network/interfaces config and tell us which interface do you use in your pfSense?

I already tried it with vmbr0 and with the physical one (ens3), also created a vmbr1 for the "LAN-Interface" in pfSense... however, never worked for me.
