[SOLVED] Can't connect to Web Config



  • Fresh load on an older HP P4 SFF box.
    WAN: On-Board Broadcom Gigabit NIC
    LAN: PCI Realtek Gigabit NIC

    WAN connected to current network just for configuring getting IPv4 192.168.5.116
    Laptop (Macbook Pro) connected directly to the LAN NIC getting IPv4 192.168.1.100 can't ping the gateway, can't ping/browse external sites.  I tried a second machine (Win10) gets IPv4 192.168.1.101 still no internal/external connectivity.  Tried Chrome, Firefox in both MacOS and Windows, tried Safari on MacOS and Edge in Windows and also Disabled AV and Firewalls.

    I can ping out from the pfSense console without issue I have reset interfaces, restarted webConfigurator, restarted the machine, reloaded the machine tried disabling checksum offloading from this other thread ( https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=80891.msg447139#msg447139 ) however as the NIC restarts they are turned back on.



  • Ok…. so just as an FYI if anyone else has this issue I was able to resolve it by choosing the "Reset to factory defaults" option a fresh install and several reloads didn't resolve it but out of curiosity I gave it a try and it worked... why I don't know but perhaps a bug in 2.3.2 ISO?

    It didn't work for me. Exact same issue. Reset to factory gives same result, but thanks for sharing!
