Rule with port alias not working



  • Hi,

    I'm setting up firewall rules on a new Pfsense installation (2.3.4), and I'm having problems with a rule that uses a port alias to block out the ports to the management interface on my firewall.

    I'v set up my firewall rules and the port alias exactly like it's done in this guide: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Restrict_access_to_management_interface
    but my rule won't trigger.

    If I make 3 separate rules each blocking one of the ports, instead of using the port alias, the management interface gets blocked. The rule is on top of the list, and I have no floating rules.

    I can't find anything on this so I figure that I must be doing something wrong, and it's driving me nuts.
    Thanks for your help! ;)






  • i want to revive this post, as i'm experiencing the same issue on 2.3.4 p1.

    i have different port aliases to use for tcp and udp. tcp ports work fine with the alias whereas udp ports alias don't.

    any ideas?



  • Hi bahsig,

    I never found a solution myself, and I got no input here here as you can see.
    It's good to know that I'm not the only one who has this problem.

  • Has anyone found a solution to this yet as im experiencing the same issue?



  • one error of the op might be the wrong port for https in the alias: its not 433, its 443.
    not sure if that could be your problem too. can you post your alias and the rule?

    Essentially what i am trying to do is stop access to he admin login page on all vlans bar the management vlan, I was able to resolve this issue though :)
