Web Interface login issue
I am currently responsible for 4 home pfSense firewalls. This morning, I noted that all of them are taking 60 seconds or so to login.
I initially thought there was a DNS issue, but all four systems' DNS are responsive.
Is there a remote system that pfSense tries to access and is down, that is causing these issues? I can see this happening on one, but not all four.
And now all four pfSense firewalls are fine.
Things that I should have included:

(all depends if it tries to refresh the version info - packages updates - the copy right notice at the bottom of the is often refreshed)
and is down
As seen a couple of weeks ago : this actually happened.
Running under ESXI
I'm using pfSense on dedicated hardware for a decade or so. Experimenting with it running under Hyper-V @home since a couple of month and I can confirm : this opens up another boat load of possible issues.
When you use an 'external' syslogger (another VM instance for example) you can see all the http GUI requests coming in. You'll be knowing that the GUI works, but that PHP is busy 'doing something' == probably waiting to time out "something".
