webgui loops back to login after successful authentication



  • Hi,

    Trying to set up a PFsense firewall (2.3.5) on virtual box (i386 processor)
    The install seems to go through fine.
    When I try to login via Webgui it seems to loop straight back to the login page and displays the authentication prompt again.
    The console displays a log message telling me that the authentication was successful (i have also deliberately used incorrect credentials and I see an authentication denied message over the console) so its not an authentication issue.
    From the console i have restarted the webgui / webconfigurator. I have rebooted the device.
    I have removed the virtual machine and reinstalled.
    I'm at a bit of a loss. Does anyone have any ideas?



  • Hi,

    Please ignore this post. it seems 3rd time lucky on installing this. Unfortunately nothing intelligent to say on how this was resolved. i must have either made a mistake in one of the setting during the first 2 installs in Virtual Box (cant imagine what though). or something is messed up on my system or installation off VirtualBox but its resolved.
    apologies to anyone having spend time reading :-)
