Not sure if my switch or pfsense
We have a weird situation where we have a lot of land between switches. We have a very long fibre run from switch a to switch b.
What I'd like to do is subnet the remote location by making a vlan in switch b that takes the SFP from switch A and forwards it to one port that would then go into pfsense. so switch A sfp port 8 goes to swich b sfp port 8 then vlan segments that port and forwards it to one port that is connected to pfsense.
I have set it up this way and currently for some reason only UDP traffic is getting through and only from one machine.
Am I crazy to think this would work?
I have ordered a small switch to do this job in case I can't get this "smart" switch to do this.
[switch A SFP port 8] –----------------[switch B SFP port 8(vlan port 8 sfp and port 16 ethernet)port 16]–----[pfsense]
Pretty sure it's the switch.
I did a firmware update that completely broke it. Rolled back and I guess I'll play the waiting game instead of pulling every lever in the switch and pfsense to try to get it to work. LOL
The small sfp switch came in.
