1st hop tracert timeout?



  • I have 2 pfsense installations in 2 different places.

    One of them is running on a PC and the oither one is running on an ALIX at home.

    The one on the PC shows up in tracert's as the first hop
    However the one at home (on the Alix) times out.  ???

    Tracing route to google.co.uk [72.14.221.104]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1     *        *        *     Request timed out.

    I'm not surpised that the 2nd hop times out as my ISP's gateway gives ICMP a low priority, however im a bit confused as to why Pfsense is timing out, I can ping it ok..

    The Alix is conncected to 2 DSL lines synced at around 22 - 24Mbit down 2mbit up.

    The Rules are configured to allow ALL Lan>Wan Traffic

    It doesn't actually matter I was just curious as to why it would happen  ;)
