Floating rules not working

  • I have a setup of about 5 vlans. Admin, Guest, Work, User and Mobile.  I have created an alias called pfsenseguiaccess with the gateway hosts of each vlan. So e.g.,,, and  I then created a floating rule to block access from the 5 networks to pfsenseguiaccess on https(443).

    However, it doesn't appear to be working as I would assume it would. For example, if I connect to the Guest network I am able to get to the gui access page via the browser for any of the networks.

    What am I not doing correctly?

    Thanks in advance

    so lets see this rule you setup.  Did you set it up inbound or outbound.  You selected all the interfaces in the floating rule?

    Keep in mind if a state is created already does not matter if you create a block rule until that state is cleared the block will not work.

  • It looks like the issue is the proxy. Those rules have a higher precedence than the firewall rules. I just blocked the gateways under the acl settings.

  • It's not that they have a higher precedence it's that you're connecting to the proxy not the remote server.
