Cannot ping WAN default gateway when sourcing from LAN



  • Hi, I cannot figure out why my NAT is not working (but I swear it was before). Here is my setup:

    pfsense box:
    LAN: 10.3.19.1
    WAN: 192.168.2.50 <dhcp>, default g/w 192.168.2.1

    internet router:
    LAN: 192.168.2.1
    WAN: <dhcp> from ISP

    From the pfsense box, if I run diagnostics->ping using the following settings:

    hostname: 192.168.2.1
    IP protocol: IPv4
    source address: LAN
    maximum number of pings: 3

    I get no reply whatsoever

    HOWEVER, if I set source address to WAN, no propblem, I get replies.

    Aaaack!! can anyone help me figure out why NAT is working?

    thanks,
    SW



  • Oh crap, I found out what it was:

    Do NOT disable the firewall under System>Advanced>Firewall
