Random inbound connections causing internet timeout



  • I'm experiencing a timeout issue I'm hoping to get some help with. Basically my internet connection has time outs when random connections are made to my WAN IP. This is causing a poor internet experience as there are times when the time outs completely kill the connection.

    From inside the LAN I disconnected all devices except my laptop and setup a continuous ping to an external server (4.2.2.2). Then I monitor the firewall logs in Dynamic View.

    Network setup for this test is as follows:
    Cable Modem -> pfSense -> Laptop
    pfSense device is a Lanner FW7535, 1.6 Dual Core CPU, 2GB RAM, SSD, Gigabit Nics. CPU usage is less than 5%, RAM usage less than 20%.

    When a ping time out occurs, I see an entry similar to this in my log:

    X  Oct 18 11:19:48	WAN	194.55.142.41:55372	[My_WAN_IP]:23396	TCP:S
    

    This happens continuously from different IP addresses all around the globe (looked up some of them using GeoIP). The ports they are trying to connect to are not open and appear to be random.

    Although the connections are blocked, why does this cause a time out in my continuous ping? I've tried creating a floating rule with Quick enabled to block these IP's (I have an alias that I add the IP's to). However the originating IP's always change and I still see IP's that I have added to the alias appear in the log with the same symptom.

    Why would blocked inbound connections cause packet loss?
    What can I do to further troubleshoot/reslove this?



  • I've tried creating a floating rule with Quick enabled to block these IP's...

    Blocking the IPs is useless since they're already at your WAN. A firewall block will stop them from going further in the case where you have a NAT'd server or something.

    Why would blocked inbound connections cause packet loss?

    They don't. This is something unique to you. Everybody's WANs get slammed with random noise all day every day.

    What can I do to further troubleshoot/reslove this?

    Anything in the System log when this happens?



  • @rcampbell said in Random inbound connections causing internet timeout:

    Why would blocked inbound connections cause packet loss?

    If it really is the inbound connections then there are probably enough to saturate your WAN connection. This would then be a DOS attack. Blocking them on your end does absolutely nothing, as they have already traveled through your ISP connection. In that case you have to talk to your ISP, so that they can block them upstream.



  • This would then be a DOS attack.

    Possible. I didn't gather that from his description, where he seems to indicate that it's hit or miss at random and not sustained.

    It would be helpful to know exactly how many of these connections he is talking about. A few dozen IPs per minute isn't going to do anything. Thousands per second likely will depending on his bandwidth and hardware.

    d.
    It would be helpful to know exactly how many of these connections he is talking

    I don't think its a dos attack, the frequency is a connection attempt every 5 to 10 seconds or so. I will look at the system logs.



  • The next time it happens, check your System and Gateway logs. What hardware are you using?



  • Hardware: Lanner FW7535, 1.6 Dual Core CPU, 2GB RAM, SSD, Gigabit Nics.

    Attached are the System-General logs from today (last 500 lines). I didn't check if the Arp messages correspond with the ping time outs, but I will check after I have plugged the switch and other devices back in. Even still with just my laptop connected to the firewall, the time outs occur as originally described and I don't see any other corresponding log entry other than the blocked connection attempts.

    You can see from the below log where I removed the rest of the network and connected my laptop directly.

    This is just normal background noise and should not cause any of your problems.
    I think the problem is upstream from you (your ISP, maybe they got routing/peering issues). If possible replace your edge router just to confirm the problem is not your equipment and call the ISP.

  • I agree with Rico. 4-5 blocks per second is literally statistically insignificant. This looks interesting:

    Oct 18 13:25:42	php-fpm	96089	/rc.linkup: Hotplug event detected for LAN(lan) static IP (172.16.0.1 )
    Oct 18 13:25:40	kernel		em1: link state changed to DOWN
    

    You may have a bad cable or flaky port on wither your router or the cablemodem. This error means there is no link on your NIC. Was it working well for some period of time before it started doing this? Or was it doing this from the moment you installed pfSense?



  • The 'link state changed to down' you see there is me unplugging the internal network, then plugging my laptop directly to the Lan interface on pfSense.

    I disconnected pfsense and tried an old router I had laying around (WRT54G), and the time outs continued.

    I then bypassed any router and connected my laptop directly to the modem, the time outs still happened so I tried another PC directly connected to the modem and time outs still happen.

    When my computer was connected directly to the modem, I was pinging the providers gateway and getting time outs so for sure anything beyond that will get time outs.

    I think its safe to say its something with the ISP, possibly their gateway or a switch in between, I've submitted a ticket with them to investigate.



  • Thanks for the update.
