And you want pfsense to be your gateway? Why would you install pfsense as VM - what are you trying to accomplish.

New to tech world and you want to jump right in with using a VM as your internet gateway?

How are you physically connected to the internet, how is your host to running virtual box connected to internet?

Are you running nat or bridge mode on your virtualbox nic you gave your VMs? That is connected to physical nic how?

Need some details and then very happy to help you - but without some details of what your trying to accomplish and what your working with your post doesn't help us help you.
