Bridging not passing traffic
I have a new installation (1.2). Bridge settings enabled by following the documentation.
Entered the following rule on LAN and WAN: Allow Any Any Any Any
Used Lan ip: 192.168.2.123 (bridge to wan) (tried same ip as wan, didn't work either.)
Used Wan ip: 192.168.2.124
External (WAN) client: 192.168.2.112
Internal (LAN) client: 192.168.2.113
The problem: The firewall is not passing any traffic from wan to lan ICMP to internal client. The internal client can surf on the net. A dump sees all traffic comming in, but it does not go out.
Looks like a routing problem, but since it should be bridged :) it can't be can it?
BUMP Help, need this going asap :-[
I don't know the internal working of pfSense in this regard so the following suggestion might be way off the mark.
WAN and LAN interfaces seem to have a special meaning in pfSense and possibly some special "hidden" firewall rules. Can you add or configure a third interface to this box? It will default name to opt1. Then bridge opt1 and LAN and leave WAN unconnected (so connect your previous WAN to what you now call OPT1). Probably not optimal but you wanted something in a hurry.
I have a wireless LAN configured this way and it seems to have been working fine for a couple of months.
