Ping/Tracert allow from LAN to WAN in PF Sense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)



  • Hi,

    How can i enable ping and tracert from my LAN to WAN? i am unable to trace or ping to outside from my LAN.
    My PF sense version is 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)



  • By default pfSense allows anything from LAN.
    If you have restrict the outgoing access add a rule which allow ICMP protocol.



  • I did , but it is not working, please find the snapshot




  • This ICMP rule only allows access to WAN address. That is the IP address set on your WAN interface. You must set the destination to any if you want to ping any host outside.

    Dude post up your lan rules.. Why are you  putting anything in floating?

    What would be the point of your rule intnetwork to intnetwork?  A rule allowing access from alias to the same alias would be pointless.  Pfsense does not filter traffic from devices to devices on the same network, etc.  So your filtering without even knowing what its in it would have to allow A to talk to A which would be pointless.

    Your icmp rule is to your wan address.. Which sure is not going to allow you to ping say 8.8.8.8 anyway..  Even if you wanted the rule in floating.
