2<p>The firewall console is available using VNC. The following table gives the VNC ports:</p>
3<pre><code>| Firewall        | Port |
4| | |
5| | |
6| | |
7| | |
8| | |
9| | |
10| | |
11| | |
12| | |</code></pre>
13<p>Use your vnc client to connect to the firewall for your group.</p>
14<p>You should see something like this:</p>

18<h1 id="setting-the-ip-addresses"><a href="#setting-the-ip-addresses"><span class="header-section-number">2</span> Setting the IP addresses</a></h1>
19<p>You'll see that there are two lines in the middle of the screen which we need to configure to set the addresses for the WAN and the LAN.</p>
20<pre><code>Choose Option 2) Set interface(s) IP address</code></pre>
21<p>Then choose 1) to set the WAN address. Ignore the option to use DHCP and then set the IP address to:</p>
23<p>Set the subnet mask to:</p>
25<p>Set the WAN gateway address:</p>
27<p>Ignore the IPv6 setup and don't revert to HTTP for configuration.</p>
28<p>Now we'll set the LAN interface:</p>
29<pre><code>Choose Option 2) Set interface(s) IP address</code></pre>
30<p>Then choose 2) to set the LAN address. Set the IP address to:</p>
32<p>Set the subnet mask to:</p>
34<p>Ignore the LAN gateway address and the IPv6 setup and don't revert to HTTP for configuration.</p>

36<div class="figure">
37<img src="fw9-2.png" alt="alt text" /><p class="caption">alt text</p>
39<p>Check that the addresses look correct.</p>

41<pre><code>Choose Option 7) Ping host</code></pre>
42<p>and test to:</p>
44<h1 id="turn-off-the-firewall-temporarily"><a href="#turn-off-the-firewall-temporarily"><span class="header-section-number">5</span> Turn off the firewall temporarily</a></h1>
45<pre><code>Choose Option 8) Shell</code></pre>
46<p>You should now see a prompt like:</p>
47<pre><code>[2.1-Release][route@pfSense.localdomain]/root(1): </code></pre>
48<p>Type the following commands:</p>
49<pre><code>pfctl -d
50route add default 10.10.N.254</code></pre>
51<p>Normally you wouldn't need to do these commands as you'd access the firewall from the internal network.</p>
