Can't ping some hosts



  • Hi there.

    I have a 2 networks which I am trying to get an IPSEC tunnel between them

    Site A –--- Site B

    Site A has multiple gateways. They have one that they use and I've come in and set up this pfsense box as a 2nd one for VPN.

    Site B can only ping the hosts which have the pfsense box set as their default gateway. Is this normal? Microsoft ISA server doesn't seem to behave in this way....

    Site A can ping all of site B (however everyone on site B has pfsense as their default gateway)

    Help is appreciated

    Cheers



  • Site B can only ping the hosts which have the pfsense box set as their default gateway. Is this normal? Microsoft ISA server doesn't seem to behave in this way….

    This is how routing works.
    Create on the router which your other clients have as their default gateway a static route for the range onthe other side of the tunnel, pointing to the pfSense.



  • I guess as such.

    Is there any other way? (I can spin up more machines, that's not a problem)

    I don't really have control over the other default gateway :(



  • Well you "could" place pfSense in front of your other default gateway (WAN side), so that all traffic has to go over pfSense.
    Or you could add static routes to all your clients which need access to the other site.
    But i suppose that's not really what you want ^^
