Why do I have to reboot pfsense to access server on the lan?



  • Thought I would ask some quesitons before I went blindly chasing a wild goose. I have pfsense setup like this to my dads store we live across the street. The shop is direct line of site and everything works well as fare as internet access.

    What happens is I can view the camras from the 10.0.0.0/24 network I can log into the camra system and view the footage past or present. Sometimes I can't untill I reboot the pfsense boxes. Do I have to put static routes in the Gateway for the 192.168.2.10/24?  I am just learning so please help me understand why this is happening?



  • Would it be better to set this up with a vip like this?
