Not seeing freenas servers when mapping drives.



  • Got the pfsense router built with no major issues other then the cat trying to help.

    Thank you Kom for the help :)

    Ran into only one real kind of bug with being able to see my AC86U which is running a AP but i am not seeing the freenas server.

    Now i can still manual type the addresses and add the drives without issues so its hardly the end of the world.

    I know i am missing something stupid but the brains not working at the moment ;)

    Figure i should get everything working before i rack mount the thing during the week.

    Whats the silly thing iam missing here?

    Not sure what you think pfsense has to do with "seeing" freenas servers for mapping drives? Via NFS? Windows clients? Are you trying to browse for SMB shares?

    Does it resolve via its name? What is your domain, are you registering dhcp in pfsense? Do you have a reservations setup for it?

    How about just placing a host override for its name? You mention some wifi router as access point? Do you have clients on different segments/vlans?

    Yes, you will need to define what you mean by 'seeing' here. And, yes, also where are you expecting to 'see' it from?

    If you can still open connections to it by IP address directly then pfSense is not blocking traffic.
