No Internet access on client machines



  • I've just set up pfSense but i'm having trouble getting internet access on client machine's to work. I've set up a captive portal and the client machine can see it and authenticate ok. When trying to access a website it just hangs and times out.

    To troubleshoot I've disabled the firewall in system->advance->firewall&nat

    I can ping and tracert out to www.google.com on the WAN port
    the interfaces are both showing a green up icon
    I've been able to download and install packages on pfsense ok (installed squid)

    PFsense is currently created in a VM with 2 nic adapaters, one for LAN and one for WAN.
    Lan IP is set at 192.168.100.47
    WAN IP is set at 192.168.250.253

    There is a rule on the router to redirect all port 80 traffic to go to 192.168.250.253
