PfSense on Proxmox VE, 3 NIC but cant ping host
After searching for a while and spent the whole day to figure out what the problem is, I now ask for help.
I have a server with Proxmox VE.
On this I run PfSense as a VM.
I have added another NIC (10GBE) and wanted this NIC to be the LAN NIC.
In Proxmox I added the NIC to the PfSense VM so It shows up in PfSense GUI.
I changed all the VMs in Proxmox to utilize this new NIC (bridge) as well and it works fine.
However.. I can't ping the Proxmox host from anywhere (including PfSense!).
Luckily before this I had OpenVPN configured and when I connect via OpenVPN, then I can ping Proxmox GUI and enter it.
Since it works via OpenVPN then it must be a rule I have missed or something else.
My gateway in PfSense is 192.168.1.1
And I have 192.168.1.1/24 as a static IPv4 configuration in PfSense LAN.
The VPNLan is on 192.168.1.70/24
On my LAN i have a rule "allow from any to any" on the LANnet
I really need help troubleshooting this as I've sunk my network several times today.
I solved the issue "the easy way".
I went into Proxmox and changed VMBR0 bridge from old interface NIC to new interface NIC instead of having a new bridge along with setting back the IP and gateway.
And subsequently I changed the same in PfSense back to use the old NIC.
As it works and I'm no network genius, I'll leave it be for now :)
