On Restart no valid ip for Host



  • I run Windows 10 on Host and VM Ware Workstation with vm pfsense and vm windows 10. On a reboot or restart vm pfsense boots first and vm windows 10 on 1 min delay, All devices on lan get proper ip except Host.

    The only way I can solve no ip for host is to unplug lan cable to host when rebooting or restart and wait for pfsense to start then plug in the lan cable and I get valid ip right away.

    Please let me know if there is and easy fix I am overlooking.

    Configure a static IP on the host.



  • I did a static ip from Windows 10 with Gateway 192.168.1.253 (pfsense) DNS 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 - WORKS
    Thanks You.
