I am new and learning about pfSense. I have a issue where I am unable to transfer files(30Gb-40Gb) across diff VMs on same subnet.
I am using pfSense v 2.4.4 installed on Dell R200 physical server.
I have a cisco 3560 8port swicth between pfSense and VMs.
Whenever I start transfer it runs well for 1gb or so but later drops the network for that vm(vm disconnects from network) but all the other devices remains unaffected.
So far I have changed Ethernet cables and fresh installed pfsense, connected a different switch but still not able to pin point where the issue is.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Swapping cables should be the second choice. If cables are bad, you would see massive errors :
The first choice is : remove a couple of billion software lines first : remove the "VM part" for you setup.
That way you discover that the setup of the virtual network cards might some retouching - the subject isn't unknown in this forum : people speak about "switching of network hardware offloading" etc.
Start by looking here : the right section : Home / pfSense Software / Virtualization.
thank you for quick response. I am going to look through link you provided.
At the moment doesn't look like issue with the cable
