I have just spent the last few days building an ITX based 4 Gbe port pfsense box.
Default settings with my PPOE no problems - all working. Open VPN need a good looking at as that is not quite right.
However the biggest problem I have is the addition of the third interface.
I run a sizeable HyperV dev environment and the Virtual Machines communicate over another VLAN Routed back to the Core Switch. Management is 192.168.1.x and DataInterLink in 192.168.2.1 . The Switch hits my third (em2) Interface with the IP Address of 192.168.2.1 set up as I would my ASA's etc .. but what is surprising is that I cannot ping the interface down that connection so a device in that subnet connected via that switch to that port on the pfsense box cannot hit 192.168.2.1 however if you PULL the cable you ARE able to reach that IP address through the 192.168.1.x subnet as if they were bridged / routed ... Its driving me nuts what am I missing please guys. Pfsense could be a long term answer to some big solutions if I can just get comfortable with it
