PfSense in a virtual machine… not pingable
dventet last edited by
First off, I apologize if this is a rudimentary question but I am very new to pfSense.
I installed pfSense1.2 on a virtual machine following the very helpful tutorial found at http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Tutorials. The VM is hosted on a Dell workstation with a single physical NIC that is attached to our LAN switch. I have created two virtual network adapters inside the VM, one bridged to the physical NIC and the other set to "Custom: VMnet2" as per the tutorial's instructions.
PfSense sees the two virtual adapters and I assigned the LAN and WAN interfaces. I then installed pfSense to the virtual hard disk.
The problems I'm having are:
I can't ping LAN or WAN interfaces from the host computer where the VM resides or from any client computer on my LAN. I CAN ping these interfaces and all other IPs on our LAN using the ping feature in pfSense.
I can't access the webgui at http://192.168.1.1 which is expected if I can't ping this address.
I'm sure it's something stupid that I'm (not)doing, but I've been looking through the Wiki and haven't been able to find a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated!
