Unable to access web interface.



  • Hi

    pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
    There have been NO config changes made in the last 3-4 days.

    Not had any issues and was able to log into the Web Interface earlier today.
    Just tried to log in and it times out trying to get to the Web Interface.
    I've tried from different browsers with the same result.

    No issues getting online or accessing the box via SSH.

    Any idea how I can get access again, ideally without having to fully restart ?

    Thanks

    What is pkg and why does that seem to occasionally take CPU resources ?
    Thanks


  • Banned

    Disable the upgrade checks on dashboard (and remove the packages widget if it's there).



  • Thanks I've disabled the update checks.
    Only things left are System Information, Interfaces, Service Status, Interface Statistics and IPSec.

    I'll see how that goes.

    Thanks
