ISP bridge mode without Internet just in pfsense box



  • Olá! I just setup my ISP modem in bridge mode. The computers in my LAN has Internet as expected. But, just the pfsense dont have Internet... its not possible even to ping a website. Is there any extra configuration to do?

    ISP Modem (bridge mode) ---> PFSENSE (DHCP) ---> LAN



  • If you connect pfSense to the modem, it should get an IP address. That's what I do here. Does it even have an address?



  • @JKnott :

    @cezarq said in ISP bridge mode without Internet just in pfsense box:

    he computers in my LAN has Internet as expected.

    so WAN should be up.

    @cezarq :
    Why should you want to ping a web site ?
    Why would a web site reply to a ping ? That IP address is set up to reply to http requests on its port 433, and probably also on the ancient 80. Not '25'. Nothing says it's also a mail server (port 25) or has a SSH access (port 22) or a NTP service (port 123) etc.
    True, some servers are set up to reply to ping requests, that 's strictly an optional setting, decided by the admin of that web server. It's not the IP protocol but ICMP.

    Do you pass the ICMP protocol on your LAN firewall ?

    Where are you ping from ? A LAN device or from pfSense ?

    You could test ping www.google.com or ping 8.8.8.8 : both are not working ?
    If the first doesn't work, but the second does, it's a pure DNS issue.

    Access this page on pfSense : System > Package Manager > Available Packages and does it list all the available packages ?
