Firewall GUI interface crawls after enabling vlan on WAN interface



  • This post is deleted!


  • Actually it seems as soon I disable the WAN interface the access to the landing page of psense goes quick, when I enable the WAN interface (having internet connection or not) make the GUI hang for 60 seconds. That is definitely something trying to reach out and not having an answer, then timing out.

    I can't figure out what it is.

    It is not related to vlan I think, but happens as soon I configure my WAN with VLAN.

    If I set the WAN interface on a LAN side or another uplink firewall, it works fine, go figure!

    feels like some sort of bug to me



  • ok, reason behind was that the next hop firewall managing the next hop was blocking traffic outbound from this pfsense downlink.

    So the landing page was trying to access some external source, because it was blocked it would timeout after 60 seconds I think, maybe it was the update checker or something, but I would not expect to freeze the interface for that long because of that.
