In the available images, you have the option to deploy a server with pfSense. Once you have the server deployed, the pfSense installation will start, which can take between 10 and 15 minutes and you can view its progress from the Emergency Console.
Among the pfSense features, it's worth mentioning the Firewall, NAT, Multi-WAN, load balancing, VPN (IPsec, OpenVPN, PPTP and in recent Wireguard versions), PPPoE server and DHCP Server, amongst other features.
Enable HTTPS access
By default, the pfSense access is created with HTTP. We highly recommended to activate the HTTPS option, so that the connection is secure. To do so, you have to access pfSense and then go to System > Advanced and within the Admin Access section, activate the HTTPS (SSL/TLS) option.
Activate the private network
If you need to activate the private network in pfSense you have to activate the private network in your Clouding server:
After activating the private network option, access again the pfSense panel and go to Interfaces > Assignments. In this section, there will be a new interface available to set up:
Click +Add to add the new interface and add a new LAN interface in pfSense.
Then, go to Interfaces > LAN, activate the network and check the DHCP option in the IPv4 configuration:
Setting up a customized private network
If you want to set up a customized private network with another IP range, you can configure Static IPv4 in the IPv4 configuration.
