One of the main reasons I wanted pfsense was for the country ip blocking. The sonicwall only has geo-ip blocking for paid services. I do not want to sit at a keyboard and enter in 100 thousand ip ranges to block and have to update them regularly. pfsense has a country ip blocking package.
I said I was new to networking. Why 64bit.. Why 4gb ram for VM.. That's just the way I configured it and I had enough ram for it.
Why can't I set it up like I explained and disable nat within pfsense? then there would be no double nat.
This is the only free thing I could come up with. I am not going to use some peerblock or software junk on every computer I have and have to still enter an endless amount of ip ranges.
Is there a way to configure it using both pfsense and sonicwall?

I would like to use both. Not everybody wants the same thing, nor does everybody agree with the same thing, nor does something somebody wants have to make sense to everybody else. Everybody is different and wants what they want. Thats just people. I want to be different and make no sense at all

I can be crazy too and have a convoluted setup. Just so it works.

btw. I did post on the pfsense forums but nobody responded in 5 days so I went here.

Why - completely and utterly pointless to double nat. Why would you think you need pfsense even if in transparent mode with sonicwall there.. Pick One and move forward you don't need both.
Triple NAT really. The SMC modem/router from Comcast does one too.
My other piece of advice is to make sure you reboot the SMC after you make any changes. Sometimes they don't 'take' until a reboot on those things. They are real pieces of ######.

Obviously I chose the wrong forum to ask for help in doing what I asked. You people have been nothing but rude to me. I wish the same back at ya you scum.

I don't think you will last here very long with that sort of attitude. BudMan has given you the best possible advice.
