Single NIC Proxmox > Pfsense > Internet / Config file swaps.

Currently I have Proxmox running on a older gaming rig. It only has a single NIC.

I do not currently have a managed switch before proxmox it is directly touching the all in one Router Provided by ISP.

Eventually I will setup the 48 port cisco switch i have but for now I was wondering if its possible to:

1. Set up multiple configs in proxmox so that I can swap to allow proxmox to have internet access for updating and downloading Templates.

2. Have a second Ip address for Proxmox with in the Pfsense Lan to for downloading and updating.

Please bare with my lack of knowledge in this subject. This is a home lab and I am learning as I go.:oops:

Pfsense Wan is pointing to vmbr0
Pfsence Lan is pointing to Vmbr1 with a /24
