Cannot specify destination port. Is this a bug?



  • Hi,

    I'm just starting with pfSense.

    I configured my interfaces and started defining Firewall Rules.
    I defined a floating rule applied to LAN interfaces inbound; Source: any, Destination: <dns ip="" addr="">and port: 53 (DNS)
    That worked.

    Then I decided to define some Firewall aliases for hosts (lists of AD servers to be precise).
    Then I defined a floating rule applied to LAN interfaces inbound; Source: any, Destination <alias>and 389 (LDAP).
    but after Save and turning to the list of rules Destination Port is still: * and any new rule cannot have its destination port set.

    I've reset to factory default and am using IP addresses (no aliases) and have the same result.

    Has anyone seen this before?

  • I just tried making some floating rules with alias as a destination and specifying a port. The combinations I tried worked fine. I tested on a 2.3.4 system.

    If you can reproduce it easily, then post screen shots of the settings you are entering. That will help us understand the exact data entered on the webGUI.



  • Hi,

    Thanks for responding.

    I just don't get it. I reinstalled, reconfigured all of my interfaces and tried to create another rule with the same result.

    Please see attached config.png and result.png.

    Destination port "From" should also be set to DNS – that defines a range, and for a single port you set "from" and "to" to the same value.
