help me understanding rules



  • Hi there

    i have a little bit trouble understandig rules in pfsense.

    so in my example i have 2 vlans/interfaces

    10.0.10.0/24
    10.0.20.0/24

    making a rule -> 10.0.10.0 -> allow SSH to 10.0.20.0
    second rule -> 10.0.20.0 -> BLOCK SSH from 10.0.10.0

    now SSH is still allowed.

    i'm absolutly know this rules makes no sense, but in my understanding, the rule from the 20.0 has to block this traffic?

    am i wrong? when yes, can you please explain this scenario?

    thank you helping me :)



  • Post a screenshot of your rules, you can drag the screen shots into the message window.

    Also it's worth killing the firewall states after changing firewall rules.
