New rules being created against the policy



  • I have got Pfsense 1.2 installed on a Dell 2950 with both WAN and LAN connected to the same network. The problem I am having is that the server creates states like

    udp  192.168.16.2:137 <- 192.168.16.254:137

    This is causing the firewall to create huge state table and transmit hug amount of taffice and flood the network. I have put some rules in pleace to try and stop this but some states are still being create.






  • Why that network setup?, it´s bound be problem with that

    /F



  • @Jonb:

    Stop there.
    Unless this is a bridged setup it wont work.
    LAN and WAN have to be in separate subnets for pfSense to be able to route.



  • reason being is that I have inherited this network and I can't just rip out the old one :(. Wail I do agree and think it is a really bad idear this is the way I have been told I have to do it.



  • inhereting networks sucks ;), but what´s the point of having this configuration at all?

    /F



  • As has been said, as you currently have it configured it can't work and won't work.



  • well that no biggy gives me more reason to change it sooner.
