Can't delete virtual IP address



  • I must be missing something plain. But i cannot seem to delete a virtual IP address.

    Steps to reproduce are go to Firewall -> virtual IPs. click on the trashcan next to any virtual IP address. The page reloads and the entry is still there.

    I have checked and the particular one i am testing has no carp entries or nat mappings. And no error is displayed.

    What am i missing here? version currently is 2.3 but happened on 2.2 branch as well.

    All the virtual ips we use are of the type "proxy arp" but i can change it to different types and still cant delete any of them.



  • Sounds like you're blocking javascript or your browser's javascript isn't working. You should get a confirmation pop-up after hitting the delete icon.



  • Sorry, i do get the following popup confirmation message, but on page refresh, the rule is still there and it doesnt say at the top anything about applying settings.




  • @ipfftw I have the same problem, did You fix it?



  • I have virtual IP's that Ive deleted in the three years since this thread started so I can tell you this is not a pfsense issue.. Can you try a different browser?

    Try it on your phone possibly??



  • @chpalmer I have tried different browsers but I can’t remove it. I have removed in the past with no problem. I tried also to remove all the outgoing nat. No error appear and after pressing remove and confirm the vip still be present also in the arp table.

    what version of pfsense, what interface is the vip on? What type of vip did you create? IP Alias, Carp, Other?

    I just created and deleted a vip.. So can not duplicate this problem.



  • @johnpoz Hi , my pfsense is the last version 2.4.4, I have an interface over a vlan .
    I created an Ip alias on this interface but now I can’t remove it. It is strange !! I did it many times but in this case I can’t understand why.

    You could always pull the vip out of the config, and then reload it.

    Backup, edit xml to remove the vip, restore the backup.
