Issues after update to 2.4.3



  • This morning I updated from 2.4.2 to 2.4.3 and after rebooting I am now unable to access  the web admin page. I've tried rebooting the firewall a couple of times but this hasn't helped. I am able to use the USB console cable to connect to the console but I'm not sure what I need to do to be able to get into the web admin GUI again?

    Whats also strange is that although my internet is working I can't RDP into my servers on another VLAN.

    So to start with, how do I get into the web admin GUI again?



  • I managed to gain access by temporarily disabling pf and this is what I was presented with in the GUI (see attached)

    What is the issue here? Cannot allocate memory, what does this mean?




  • IT means you have the same problem that a lot of others are having with this upgrade.  This is like the fourth or fifth post about this exact same issue that I've read.



  • I increased my "Firewall Maximum Table Entrie" from 200000 to 400000 and that seemed to do the trick.



  • The issue is present with 2.4.2p1 also.
    Increasing the maximum table size resolve the issue.

    Yeah I believe the coincidence with 2.4.3 is just that - a coincidence. The bogonsv6 file simply seems to have grown to a point it is tickling the 200000 default, though I have no historical size data of that table.

    Using things like pfBlockerNG will only increase your chances of exceeding that allocation limit.



  • Bogonsv6 reached 95K entries last week.

    Only people with "serious" setup encountered this behaviour because they already have a lot of alias/tables configured.
    I think it should be safe to increase the default value to something bigger.



  • Hello

    Access the console and use option 11 and retry access in the GUI
