static route ...... impossibly lacks ifp



  • I am having problems reaching clients machines connecting by OpenVPN to my pfsense box. The error I see in the status/system logs/system/routing is

    "static route 192.168.101.1 (mask 0xffffffff) --> 192.168.101.1 impossibly lacks ifp"

    What could be causing this error. The only change is an upgrade from pfsense

    version 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2 to 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3

    The clients can reach the servers but the servers cannot reach the clients.

    Please share your experience if you have seen this errors.



  • I rebooted the clients on the remote computers and reinitiate the connections and I am able to reach them after the openVPN connections were established. So I did not do much really. Meanwhile the error

    "static route 192.168.101.1 (mask 0xffffffff) --> 192.168.101.1 impossibly lacks ifp"

    is still present in the status/system logs/system/routing. I guess it has nothing to do with the problem I faced. Its just a noise.
