Not getting access to my bluehost webmail services as soon as Pfsense is on.

  • When the internet connection is directly connected to a machine, I can login to my webmail login - Bluehost. However, placing pfsense in the middle every other webmail works fine but Bluehost. There is not SQUID OR PFBLOCKERNG configured. I can get access to everywhere. Hitting the login button is like refreshing the web and never it goes in.

    I will appreciate the help.

    Do you have load-balanced WANs? That can behave like that.

    Otherwise check the link MTU. Check the WAN in Status > Interfaces especially if you have a DHCP WAN.

    Are you running 2.4.4?


  • running 2.4.4.

    I do have configure load balancing with two WAN connection from different ISP and they works perfectly but when they do I can no longer access to my email. I place my email address and my password and when I hit the login botton it just refreshing the webpage and never goes in. Taking one WAN connection off I can logging with no problem, just with one WAN no matter what WAN I take off. What should I do?

    You can try enabling sticky connections in System > Advanced > Miscellaneous.

    If that doesn't work then you will need to set a policy route the webmail server that only uses one WAN.

    Almost all sites can handle load balanced source IPs gracefully these days but you do occasionally still find a site that fails.
