VLAN Traffic Shaping Possibly not working?



  • I'm looking at what seems to be a bug, but I'm needing some direction to ensure I'm testing properly before I head over to report on redmine…

    I'm using VLANs and not seeing any traffic go through my queues on the Status->Queues page. And it seems that none of my traffic is getting shaped.

    Here's my current home-based firewall setup, which was working fine with 2.3:

    WAN -> VLAN10 -> pfsense computer with single gigabit port -> VLAN 1 -> LAN

    The computers I've tested with have been an old Dell Optiplex desktop computer with Intel gigabit port (em0) and the other is a Lenovo laptop with RealTek 8168/8111 gigabit port (re0).

    I used the "Multiple Lan/Wan" wizard to set up for using VoIP and making sure DNS gets high priority.

    Originally, I had done a fresh install of 2.4, and then restored the configuration from my 2.3 box. Thinking that may have been an issue, I've done a fresh install on each of the above mentioned boxes, set up VLANs, then ran the traffic shaping wizard. Every test has failed in the above setup.

    Is there something I'm missing? Please give me some direction on what logs or configurations I should review or post to make sure there's actually a pfSense issue, as opposed to a hardware/system issue.

    Thanks!



  • Possibly you are encountering this bug: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/7116



  • Ah, yes, that's my bug!

    I haven't yet tested on anything but these computers with VLAN, so was assuming it had to do with VLAN. (my bad, DUH!)

    Thank you for pointing me in the direction of that report!

    I'll start participating on redmine now.  ;)
