Disappearing static route



  • I have deployed several pfSense firewalls and occasionally I have experienced some static routes just disappearing. The static routes are on a VLAN interface to another gateway.

    Originally, I theorized it could be due to the gateway monitoring action if the remote gateway became unresponsive. I disabled the gateway monitor action (monitoring is still enabled) and restarted the dpinger process for good measure. Unfortunately, I experienced the route disappearing again. No messages are logged related to gateways.

    The static route is still defined in the configuration. Editing the route and re-saving re-establishes the route.

    Is there anything I am not considering?

    I have experienced the issue on 2.4.3 to 2.4.4.
