Can Ping, Not Access



  • I am hoping you guys can save me.
    I've been pounding my head against this wall for almost a week.

    Thank you for the assistance.

    Three servers

    • HQ, 24, 26
    • vsphere essentials
      Three locations
    • west, middle, east
      IPSec VPN

    hardware:
    PFsense is located in ESXI on servers 24 & 26
    servers 24/26 are rented servers, with no physical access
    A Meraki MX64 is being used before server HQ

    network layout
    -HQ
    Modem -> Meraki -> Server HQ -> vmkernal (192.168.100.11)
    network: 192.168.100.0

    -24
    OVH -> Server 24 -> PFsense -> vmkernal (192.168.24.11)
    network: 192.168.24.0

    -26
    OVH -> Server 26 -> PFsense -> vmkernal (192.168.26.11)
    network: 192.168.26.0

    VPN
    IPSe is setup with a connection to each server. it is active and running.
    The vms on all three servers can interact perfectly

    Problem:
    Unable to access vmkernal on server 24 & 26 outside of their local network
    Can ping, but not access

    Example one:
    a vm on server 24 can access vmkernal on 24, but not on 26.
    a vm on server 26 can access vmkernal on 26, but not on 24.
    a vm on server HQ can not access vmkernal on either 24 or 26.
    all vms on all servers can access vmkernal on server HQ

    Example two:
    any device can ping servers 24 & 26 's vmkernal.
    But when trying to access it, the connect times out.
    PFsense logs show, the packets are never delivered.

    vsphere firewall:
    I disabled the esxi firewall on all three servers. Nothing changed.
    I added both the public and private networks to the vmware firewall, on all three servers. nothing changed.

    States:
    Ping traffic is delivered.
    all other traffic is not.

    Firewall:
    IPsec rule to allow all traffic

    Wireshark:
    retransmission, the packets are never reach their destination.
