Corrupted print jobs to different subnets?



  • So, I trying to leave Untangle behind and move forward with using PFSense for a bit at one of my clients sites, a car dealership.

    Their data vendor backend is CDK, which uses mostly Cisco networking equipment and kyocera printers, and their their networks are on different subnets behind the LAN.

    A few weeks ago, I tried to switch from Untangle to PFSense, and everything was good except for one very important thing. Printing to their Kyocera printers on a different subnet.

    Keep in mind, I have already checked the box for "Bypass firewall rules for traffic on the same interface" in systeml/advanced/firewall n nat.

    So, I get this error on a test print:
    PCLXL error
    subsystem: I/O
    Error: InputReadError
    Operator: ReadChar

    While it says nothing of the error, hoping to jolt your brains into remembering something similar

    I tried to access the shell for any hints, and getting tons of these across the logs at the bottom, and I don't know if it is related:
    @^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@

    @^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@CLOG^@^@^@^@m^A^@^@\xec\xcd^G^@^@^@^@^@

    For now, having to revert to Untangle until I can find a solution. I am hoping this is some firewall packet checking error, but I don't know where in the logs to look.



  • Uncheck that box you checked.  You haven't provided any tangible details about your network.  pfSense wouldn't be much of a routing firewall if it couldn't handle sending traffic between subnets.
