Connections drop on filter reload
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?
