I am trying to configure something unusual, and I am wondering if it's technically possible.
I recently moved to a different place, and got lucky with Fiber Internet on my new location.
Previously I had my pfSense Firewall/Router directly connected to the bridged DHCP WAN port of my DSL modem. Which resulted in pfSense getting an external IP by setting WAN to DHCP.
The Fiber Internet provider uses PPPoE instead of DHCP. pfSense also has support for PPPoE, but it's not very stable. I had a few situations where the PPPoE connection did not reconnect after a reboot, or where the PPPoE connection just dropped and did not come up again.
I decided to look for a solution. I bought a MikroTik RB750Gr3 which should handle the PPPoE connection, and then forward the resulting connection (and External IP + Routes) to one LAN port. I will then want to connect my pfSense Firewall to that LAN port and somehow get the External IP + Routes as my WAN connection. That way pfSense does not have to handle the PPPoE connection, but just receives the resulting connection.
So in my head it looks something like this:
INTERNET => MikroTik RB750Gr3 (PPPoE Client, External IP) => pfSense (External IP, so no double NAT) => LAN (10.2.0.1)
Is this possible? Of did I think of something technically impossible?
