  • Ping is only possible if you have a rule that authorise it between networks ...

    Why did you start another thread on this? If your routing is correct, then yes firewalls could be an issue. Also policy routing could be problem.. If your using say a vpn on pfsense, and sending traffic out some vpn interface before you allow it to go to the mik to get to the 172.16 network.

    You would have to put a rule above your policy route to be able to allow 192.168 to ping 172.16
