uvisor0: Palm, Inc. Palm Handheld, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 3
uvisor0: init failed, TIMEOUT

nat gateway for small office network

Filed under: OpenBSD, Photo — Dmitri Alenitchev @ 1:30

Tonight i replace old FreeBSD based NAT gateway to OpenBSD based NAT gateway and firewall. This short note about pf configuration.

I use Celeron 500 with two network cards (vr0 and vr1). Here is configuration steps:

  1. buy more beer and pizza!
  2. install openbsd
  3. set net.inet.ip.forwarding value to “1”. add string net.inet.ip.forwarding=1 to /etc/sysctl.conf file
  4. activate pf. add pf=YES line to /etc/rc.conf.local file
  5. let’s edit /etc/pf.conf file
    1. macros
    2. options
      set block-policy return
      set loginterface $ext_if
      set skip on lo
    3. scrub
      scrub in
    4. network address translation
      nat on $ext_if from !($ext_if) to any -> ($ext_if)
    5. filter
      block in
      pass out keep state
      antispoof quick for { lo $int_if }
      pass quick on $int_if
  6. load config file. pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf
  7. check pf configuration. pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf

…and read “The OpenBSD Packet Filter”.
