pfSence box loosing DHCP connection on WAN.



  • Hi,

    I'm still new to pfSence and would like some help. Here is a view of my network0_1538511898037_88d31ff6-5806-4ff8-b15b-32fa06bc4143-image.png
    I have a Dell Optiplex 780 with pfSence installed on it. I have two port NIC card installed as well. I have the following rules for the WAN:
    0_1538512107830_b236e3fe-a5ac-4695-909d-7ee59b6479e9-image.png
    Here are the LAN rules:
    0_1538512147361_d2f70563-2ab7-4858-a87d-85d76dee3d88-image.png
    I'm not sure what else I need. Any help would be great!
    Thanks,
    Cniles



  • Did you try putting the toggle script in pfsense. I had a similar problem and saw this trick online which worked for me.
    Login to you pfsense command line,
    Create a new file using vi with the command -> vi /etc/rc.local
    Add the lines below -

    ifconfig de0 down (use the right name for your WAN port, mine was de0)
    ifconfig de0 up
    dhclient de0

    save and exit
    Then give the file root access by executing command "chmod 755 /etc/rc.local"
    reboot

    Hopefully this should work for you too.
