    Take a screenshot of the rule and drag it into the message window.

    You'll have issues trying to route stuff as they host stuff with various CDN providers.

  • First thing I can see with your screenshot is that on your LAN interface, and assuming with only 1 defined gateway in System -> Routing, you don't need to set a gateway on your LAN rules to pass traffic. There's probably some special cases where you would set a gateway, but I'm not familiar with those. Most likely when you also have a VPN provider as an optional WAN path, I'm guessing.

    Also, what is this Netflix device you're using? If it's a stand-alone streaming box or smart TV, you could make settings in pfsense for that specific device to NOT use the VPN for internet access whatsoever.

    Dear Jeff i know i don't have put put in a Gateway but i have tried everything including the ip off the device it's the same as using a alias or do you mean something else ??

    Thanks snellie





  • @akuma1x

    Hi Jeff ,

    It's a strange issue the modem that i use is bridged for the bridge the modem had the ip adres 192.168.1.1 after the modem is bridged i have setup the pfsense with ip 192.168.1.1/24
    Now i tried to set the ip adres off the pfsense to 192.168.1.222/24 and now the rules works and Netflix is ok by the looks of it

    so i think the old ip was still active in the modem

    Thanks for now for your feedback 👍
