Free IPA cant be accessed from pfsense firewall



  • Dear Team,

    i have installed Free IPA successfully in  virtual machine using vagrant . but when i try to access it through web url using https://ipa.gworks.mobi

    i do get message as

    This site can’t be reached
    ipa.gworks.mobi took too long to respond.
    Try:

    Checking the connection
    Checking the proxy and the firewall
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

    while refering the link http://thomasloughlin.com/pfsense-dnsmasq-advanced-setup/

    i have made dns forwarder , query dns , then ssh into pfsense made changes to dnsmasq file

    when i do run following command in shell prompt of p[fsense i do get following error

    [2.3.5-RELEASE][root@pfSense.gworks.mobi]/root: dnsmasq

    dnsmasq: failed to create listening socket for port 53: Address already in use

    can any one help me whether i need to do any changes in pfsense firewall setup so that it allows to access the Free IPA web GUI in url of web brower

    Thank you

    What do you think ipa.gworks.mobi should resolve too?  That does not resolve on the public internet..

    Are you using forwarder?  Default pfsense is unbound if running current version of pfsense.. Are you trying to point ipa.gworks.mobi to some local IP vs host override?
