FIrewalla on a VLAN
So this is going to be a bit of a strange setup. I have a PFSENSE firewall/router. I have setup a VLAN (4) that is the network my kids phones and computers use. I want to install the firewalla blue on this VLAN. I can control the VLAN tag on the network switch (set the switch port to tag VLAN 4 plug the firewalla to this port). This way I can control the network and get alerts and what not on the kids network. What ports do I need to allow on the firewall to allow my iphone to manage and get alerts from the firewalla on VLAN 4 if my phone is on VLAN 1. I don't want any other communication between the two networks because I don't want the firewalla to do its thing on VLAN 1 (I have other things happening on this network that don't play nice with the firewalla)
So I upstand that it does not understand VLAN tagging but my switch and router do, So it I assign VLAN 4 to the switch port so anything that is on the port is VLAN 4 and plug the firewalla on that port it will be on VLAN 4, and router will then route all the VLAN 4 traffic to it. I plan to allow the firewalla to be in DHCP mode. Will this config not work?
