Can't connect to pfSense



  • When I run pfSense in Vmware such message pops up - 'The network bridge in device VMnet0 is temporarily down because the bridged Ethernet interface…
    The virtual machine may not be able to communicate with the host or with other machines on your network.'
    And then I can't go into configuration page of pfSense.

    Picture is attached.



  • What is your VMWare configuration for the bridged interface?  Does that interface exist?  Have you configured it to be enabled in the VM?



  • My VMWare and VM configurations are on pictures.










  • Image 3 shows that the bridged interface isn't connected - what happens if you tick it?



  • I have reinstalled VMWare, all  adapters in pfSense VM are connected, but this message still pops up -The network bridge on device VMnet0 is temporarily down because the bridged Ethernet interface is down.
    In general I want to connect from my host  to the internet through pfSense VM. Is this possible? How can I set up browser connection?



  • Is the physical ethernet adapter actually connected and functioning - the one you've bridged vmnet0 to?



  • I have one ethernet adapter on my motherboard.
