Firewall state created against loopback when PPPoE down

  • Hi,

    My pfSense connects to my ISP with PPPoE. If the PPPoE goes down, outbound traffic traffic gets state created via the loopback interface. I have gateway monitoring on & 'flush all states when a gateway goes down'. The problem is that null4 becomes the 'default route', resulting in outbound traffic going to loopback & firewall state being created. My ATA keeps retrying, but because it's the same 'session' - it never times out from the firewall state - I need to manually delete the state created via loopback to get my ATA back online.

    Is there a way to 'discard' traffic when there is no real default gateway? Or can I configure the firewall to not create state when traffic is going to null4?
