    • pc can ping pfsense box 10.0.0.1 and VLAN port 10.0.10.1
    • pfsense can ping VLAN port 10.0.10.1 but NOT pc 10.0.0.100
    • cisco switch CANNOT  ping pc,pfsense or vlan10.0.10.1

    please help im new to networking. thanks in advance.



  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    Information provided is pretty sparse. Hard to help you considering.

    What interfacse have what ip addresses and netmasks. What do the various devices have set as their default gateways?

    What is this VLAN10? Another interface on pfSense? Where is is connected?

    Is the Cisco switch layer 2 or layer 3? How is its VIP configured? Why should it be able to ping anything on 10.0.0.0/?

    ??



  • pc is connected to interface port1 on cisco switch which is a vlan10 access mode.
    pfsense box connected to interface port4 on cisco switch which is a vlan 10 access mode.

    pfsense router LAN  ip address 10.0.0.1 /24
    computer has ip address 10.0.0.100
    vlan10 in pfsense ip address 10.0.10.1

    i have not put any gateway

    switch is layer2 its 2900xl

    If the switchport going to pfSense is in access mode you do not need to set a VLAN on pfSense. Just use the regular (untagged) interface (reX, emX, igbX, etc).

    I still do not understand where VLAN10 on pfSense comes in with the 10.0.10.1 address.

    You will have to configure the switch management interface on VLAN 10 for it to be able to ping anything.



  • got it. its working now, i had to configure the switch.  thank you so much Direlict.
