pfSense setup for Disaster Recovery in VMware ESXi

We have a setup for disaster recovery where we take backups using AppAssure and replicate them to offsite servers. We then have these backups setup for High Availability using the Virtual Standby configuration that keeps the necessary VMs up to date.

This is being done for multiple companies using multiple ESXi hosts (currently, only 2). Let's call them Host1 and Host2. Host1 currently has the pfSense virtual machine along with 5 other VMs that are being replicated by AppAssure. Host2 currently only has one VM that was built manually but will eventually have more replicated VMs.

What I would like to be able to do is to have pfSense handle multiple WAN IPs (one for each company) and VLANs. Each VLAN should have access to the internet but should not be able to access each other. I have so far been unsuccessful with getting the VLANs working.

The company that is providing the collocated space provides us with public IPs as needed, however I am unsure of the exact physical equipment that the servers are connected to.

So currently, the pfSense firewall is setup with one WAN, one LAN, and one VLAN (VLAN10, VLAN tag 10) interface.

WAN is assigned to em0

LAN is assigned to em1

VLAN10 is assigned to VLAN10 on em1

Under the Firewall rules for VLAN10, there is one rule with the source of VLAN10 net and destination of any.

The LAN is currently set to

The VLAN is currently set to

On Host2, I've configured the VM Network to have a VLAN ID of 10.

I'm not sure what I'm missing.

I can provide screenshots of any piece of the configuration as needed.

With this project, I would like to be involved so I can administer this in the future.
