How to access my VM when setting up my virtual router?

I am trying to understand how I'm supposed to access my VM and also setup my pfsense router. My issue is that I have an existing network that I want to transition over to pfsense to it can manage it. I have a dual nic on my proxmox server and I've setup pci pass-through to this pfsense vm i've created. I'm not really sure how im supposed to connect to the VM once I move the ethernet cables from my existing infra into the dual NIC on the server. is there a way to power on and open a shell to a VM from within the proxmox host shell?

Yeah you can get into it from SSH just ssh in from the host shell

i see. I did not realize that I didn't necessarily need a router in order to communicate with a server as long as they're on the same network
