Possible routing problem



  • Hi, all

    I have a 4 lan box which running m0n0wall with WAN,LAN,DMZ configured. This box works well but I expreienced problem while replacing m0n0wall CF with pfsense CF for test drive.

    pfsense configuration

    WAN - PPPoE
    LAN - 10.1.2.1/24
    DMZ - 10.1.1.1/24

    policy

    LAN - allow Lan net -> any
    DMZ - allow DMZ net -> any

    Problems:

    1. This box have 128M RAM but some reserved for on board VGA, I received warning from web console about short of memory. Will this affect system stable?

    2. From lan IP 10.1.2.50, I can ping 10.1.2.1 and 10.1.1.1. But I can't ping 10.1.1.50 which works well if use m0n0wall. From pfsense web console, I still can't ping 10.1.1.50. Network environment remains the same, only gateway's changed from m0n0wall to pfsense.

    BTW. I am using pfsense 1.2.2 embedded image. Any idea? Any thing I should check first? I don't have any progress for several days.

    Thanks,

    Vincent Chen



  • When I fall back to pfsense 1.2.0, the problem 2 is gone. All incoming / outgoing traffic become normal. Maybe there is still some issue in 1.2.2 release. But problem 1 still remains. Will memory below 128M cause me any trouble?

    Vincent,



  • Its a sticky under the hardware section !!!
