pfsense unable to acces internet
Short setup information: I am running my pfsense firewall with 2 wan interfaces (192.168.178.0/24;192.168.188.0/24), a lan (192.168.0.0/24) and a wifi network (192.168.1.0/24). All PCs in the LAN having access to the internet via gateway-groups (port x to wan x and port y to wany and so on).
This works fine.
BUT: Somehow I managed it, that the firewall itself cannot access the internet... If I ping any host in the internet (accessible by LAN PCs), all packages are lost.
PING golem.de (22.214.171.124) from 127.0.0.1: 56 data bytes --- golem.de ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
If I use the WANx interface directly, I can ping the host.
PING golem.de (126.96.36.199) from 192.168.188.21: 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=0 ttl=248 time=24.295 ms 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=1 ttl=248 time=24.224 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=2 ttl=248 time=24.324 ms --- golem.de ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 24.224/24.281/24.324/0.042 ms
I believe I mady a routing fault... Any idea?
Seems you're missing an Outbound NAT rule for the second WAN.
As it happens, my question here kickstarted my brain and I got the problem solved: The "Default gateway IPv4" Setting was set to an no longer existing / working gateway-group.
Well shit happens... Thank you!
