OSPF between two pfSense routers?
For lab purpose, I have difficult to setup OSPF between two pfSense routers. I am new to OSPF anyways.
I cannot ping from client-2 (10.2.5.20) to client-1 (192.168.50.10).
Here are some examples of OSPF status from ro2 (router 2)
OSPF Neighbors Neighbor ID Pri State Dead Time Address Interface RXmtL RqstL DBsmL 192.168.50.250 1 Full/Backup 35.050s 172.16.10.1 em0:172.16.10.2 0 0 0
OSPF Routes ============ OSPF network routing table ============ N 10.2.50.0/24  area: 0.0.0.0 directly attached to em1 N 172.16.10.0/30  area: 0.0.0.0 directly attached to em0 N 192.168.50.0/24  area: 0.0.0.0 via 172.16.10.1, em0 N 192.168.122.0/24  area: 0.0.0.0 via 172.16.10.1, em0 ============ OSPF router routing table ============= R 192.168.50.250  area: 0.0.0.0, ASBR via 172.16.10.1, em0 ============ OSPF external routing table ===========

My end goal is I like client-2 can access to 192.168.50.0/24 subnet and access to the internet from ro1 (router 1) and vise versa. Thanks.

What do the firewall rules look like on your 172.16.10.0/30 interfaces on both sides?
Hello, thanks for reply. Here is the firewall rules on ro1 and ro2 at 172.16.10.0/30 interface. They are same.
You'll have to allow more than OSPF and ping to allow traffic to flow over the 172.16.10.0/30 connection. Allow IPv4 traffic.
How is your gateway defined on ro2?
