About every three days. Pfsense stops responding. Server is up. LAN is working just fine, but no internet. I have an IP on my WAN interface. I have all my traffic routed through a VPN. VPN is up but no internet. This has happened at least three times so far.
To get internet working. I need to release and renew my WAN interface. I restart the unbound prior to the releasing my IP.
This is a new build from scratch.
pfsense 2.4.4 p2
Any ideas what is causing this issue?
If you can't send any traffic out the WAN, the VPN should go down.
I know, I just looked at the interface and the VPN still had an IP. I would have expected the VPN to go down but it didn't reflect that. My ISP was up but The firewall stopped forwarding traffic.
Or your VPN stopped processing traffic. Again, if the firewall cannot pass traffic the VPN will go down.
I'm pretty sure the VPN wasn't the problem. I built this box from scratch. My old firewall worked no issues. This problem only started occurring when I went to this version.
I also posted my issue on a Pfsense Facebook forum and I had a couple people confirm they also had the same issue when they went to version 2.4.4 p2. Their fix was to revert back a level. That isn't the best option for me at this time.
I'm not an expert but I'm far from a novice.
