My client cannot connect to the internet



  • Hey,

    I am trying to connect my pfsense-client to the internet (for example ping google.com).

    I set my pfsense-router's LAN-network is 192.168.1.10/24

    This is the configuration of my client:
    b68b0bec-6a2d-4e29-a189-fc1a203c8b10-image.png

    My pfsense-router:
    07b7d488-b000-4742-80f0-d3e56200cc0d-image.png

    My dns according to my web interface:
    1de83c35-b5e1-4226-8741-c3b56cdc1f41-image.png

    With the configuration I can ping 8.8.8.8 and 192.168.1.10 from my client but not google.com, thus I cannot connect to the internet.
    My pfsense-router can ping 8.8.8.8 and google.com perfectly.

    I looked at my LAN-rules:
    9314a7aa-0303-452a-88aa-6f01bc1bac91-image.png

    I am an idiot of not getting why I cannot connect to the internet but if somebody can tell me I will appreciate it.



  • DNS prefers UDP today. So switch your DNS rule to TCP/UDP protol.



  • @viragomann said in My client cannot connect to the internet:

    DNS prefers UDP today

    DNS was always UDP, and can become TCP for special reasons.

    @Chasire : as you might have figured out by now, throwing away the default pass rule, to replace it with some TCP only rules.
    And why all the 8.8.8.8 ? You don't trust your own router / pfSense ? Or is there is reason that 8.8.8.8 should know what you're doing ?

  • @Gertjan Hello, thanks for commenting. I had set it to 8.8.8.8 to test if I can get to ping to google. At the time I didn't trust the router. Thanks to your comment I have changed my dns to my router and it worked fine.

    The rules for lan are ok now because I can go to the internet.
