Connections drop on filter reload

  • Hello,
    in our company we use a Pfsense appliance as the central gateway and for firewall functions, including VPN and so on.
    In the last months we discovered a problem regarding existing TCP connections:

    • on a filter reload or after writing and confirming a new rule, all connections are somehow reset or dropped
    • for example existing TeamViewer connections are dropped, so they must be re-initialized

    Does somebody has a clue what could be the reason for this?

    Is your wan going down, is it changing to a different wan connection..

    Normal change of a rule will not reset states... Your saying ALL states are being killed? Are you running any sort of schedules?
