High ping when routing through pfSense
I've just installed pfSense in Hyper-V on a HP microserver. When I do a speed test circumventing pfSense I get <10ms ping but when routing though I get 70+.
Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, I have been looking round the forums and Google but either the answer doesn't help or I dont fully understand what is being asked :-/
Thanks for any help,
what are you pinging exactly? approx 10ms doesn't seem like a lan but a wan connection… I get 10ms to my comcast gateway for example.
So what exactly are you pinging and how do you have the traffic routed to this something and setup through your hyper-v? I host pfsense on esxi (6.5) on old hp microserver as well (n40l) and see no such issues.
Sorry I didn't want to bombard the post with loads of details that might not be relevant!
I am using the site http://beta.speedtest.net/ which pings a an external server in my City somewhere.
My server has 2 adapters, I have created two separate virtual switches each using an adapter.
Then when setting pfSense up I passed one as WAN and one as LAN. The WAN one is set to not be shared with the host system too.
I just did another test and got 179 ping and 11Mbps. Its usually around 10 and 70Mbps.
I've fixed this issue.
For anyone wondering it was network drivers on the Hyper-V host (or lack of!)
