This is bad (routing problem)



  • I have a home office on a subnet as follows:

    Internet - pfsense - Family network (192.168.2.0/24) – powerline/homeplug bridge -- my home office subnet (192.168.3.0/24).

    I cannot transfer files from a server on the family network to a machine on the home office subnet either with samba or sftp. The transfer stalls badly. I can browse files on the family net server to a point and then that stalls.

    I vaguely recall having this problem with monowall and I think I checked the "static route filtering" in advanced options. The problem seemed to go away.

    Everything else is fine. Any thoughts?

    Update: let me refine the network just a bit more:

    Internet - pfsense (soekris 4801) - Family network (192.168.2.0/24) - - powerline/homeplug bridge – linux router/host w/ interfaces 192.168.2.254 and 192.168.3.1 - my homeoffice subnet (192.168.3.0/24)



  • Dump the linux router and use an OPT-Interface to run your homeplug driven office and the problem will go away  ;D



  • This feature was recently MFC'd and had been forgotten.

    If this is a full installtion then issues these commands from a shell to update:

    cvs_sync.sh releng_1

    Is there a way to try this on an embedded platform?

    Thanks. I want to use the Opt for a access point but I'm needing it less and less. It may come to this.

    No, you only could use diagnostics> edit file from the webgui to replace the file the changes were made:
