New to PFSense. I watched a few videos on YouTube (Tom Lawrence, and when his failed another one) for how to configure PFSense to allow HomeKit across vlan. I was previously using an Edgerouter without HomeKit issues, so I tried to configure the PFSense similarly but with no joy. I don't have a ton of experience with routers/firewalls which is why I moved to PFSense to get more into it.
The strangest thing is this was working for a while, then just stopped.
VLANS - IOT, WIFI, LAN
My IOT firewall rules
With the opening of specific ports, that is what needed to be done in order to make the Edgerouter work, so I figured it couldnt hurt to try as a step.
I have a few floating rules in an attempt to get this working, thought maybe I needed these rules on all interfaces and this would be the easiest way
I also have Ahavi running enabled, reflecting, and I'm not running IPv6. (tried with Ahavi disabled as well)
When I check states,
IOT udp 10.0.2.142:10008 -> 220.127.116.11:10008 NO_TRAFFIC:SINGLE 542 / 0 108 KiB / 0 B
I hope I provided enough info for someone know what I'm taking about.
