Couple of strange issues since upgrade

  • Hi

    Upgraded to 2.4.4-RELEASE (amd64) since then I've had a couple of strange issues.

    pfSense is doing the PPPoE connection to my ISP and I get disconnections every few days, prior to the upgrade I had none at all.

    Going to Statue / Interface I can see the connection is down. If I click connect, I get 'IPv6 Link Local' & 'Gateway IPv6' details, but nothing for 'IP v4'. After a while it will recover, if not I have to reboot my pfSense box. Is there a better way to restart the WAN link correctly ?

    When this has happened all SIP trunks on a local IP PX fail to register when the WAN is up again. To get them working again I have to clear all states relating to Port 5060 and reload the filters. As soon as I do this the trunks work.

    I've also noticed my open VPN connection to Private Internet Access disconnects frequently. Sometimes it restarts itself, other times I have to stop and restart the service, again no issues with the previous version.

    Can anyone advise on how I can diagnose what is happening.

    What do you see logged in the System and PPP logs when it's failing to connect?


  • Hi
    Thanks for the reply.

    Next time it happens I'll check.
    My openvpn connection has dropped twice tonight. I've changed the server address I connect to and will monitor..

    Sorry but updates to your firewall is MANDATORY!! ;) That is if you want to keep up security fixes, etc. etc. That is fine you don't want to update the firmware on your printer or something.. And sure if its production you don't have to pull the trigger the day it comes out, etc.. But keeping your stuff updated is mandatory in running any sort of sane network...
