Tagging WAN Interface Issues



  • Hello,

    I am simply trying to tag my WAN interface so I do not need to do so in VMware.

    I added VLAN 3000, and assigned it to my WAN interface, eth0.

    I removed the VLAN tagging from VMware… and I expected it to be working right away... Unfortunately to my dismay, it did not.

    Consoling to the machine, was the repeating message "arprequest: cannot find matching address". The GUI became unresponsive, Luckily a reboot fixed it--but I still did not have internet access... The applied settings were still there.

    I reverted back to my original interface eth0 as it was, and the same message appeared on the console...No internet still. This time, a reboot reconnected me to the internet (Had to also revert VMware back to tagging obviously).

    I am running pfSense version:
    2.3.2-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Tue Jul 19 12:44:43 CDT 2016
    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p5
    Machine is a Dell R710, so I expect VLAN tagging to be fine, as it is with VMware.

    Any help with this would be appreciated.
