LAN IP via DHCP -> No packets to WAN



  • Hello,

    I am trying to do something like cloud deployment template for pfsense. Ideally, I want both interface addresses assigned from separate DHCP Server.

    I am able to see that both LAN and WAN interfaces take their addresses from DHCP, but no traffic passes from LAN to WAN. Here's what I've tried so far.

    1. Since I read somewhere that if you enable DHCP client for LAN , the interface is handled more like another wan and no auto NAT is created, I created a new manual NAT rule.
    2. Created a Firewall rule that allows communication.
    3. Globally set disable reply-to
    4. Disabled auto created LAN Gateway

    If I set the LAN IP statically, everything works like a charm. When I revert to DHCP client , no traffic is flowing.

    I use the same setup for Cisco ASAv and it works.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
