Trying to figure out a solution to the no bridge-mode\no port forwarding in T-Mobile’s dumbed down appliance.
A pfSense firewall will port forward so I can get Plex and ChannelsDVR among other things from outside the network. This solves the bridge mode and port forward problem. It also does DHCP and NAT. Add to that my Google Mesh WiFi system (5 units.)
So what I’m looking at is T-Mobile appliance>pfSense appliance>Google Router. Only now I’ve got triple NAT (disaster) unless I put the Google in Bridge mode. But then I’m pretty sure the mesh won’t work.
Anyone using pfSense with a mesh system? I know I could try ZeroTier but really like the capabilities of pfSense. It can really improve the network in addition to some good protection.
