IPSEC tunnels always need MANUAL conection… even after reboot
This may be a silly one… but i have 6 Ipsec boxes with tunnels between pfsense with version 2.3.1-RELEASE-p5
5 remote boxes to the on in the main office one..
The issue i have is that for now the tunnels never connect by them selfs (automatically)... i must always connect manually.... if the boxes reboot same thing... they stay disconeted untill i go on the pfsesne at the head office and manually click on connect link untder IPSEC STATUS....
after its ok.
never had this with previous versions.... any ideas ?
for now still in my lab environment so i can test anything.
Do you have an IP address filled in on the IPsec P2 entry to ping the remote end? The P2 won't come up until some traffic tries to pass.
