DHCP Server on LAN Interface requires Firewall Rules
Everything I have researched points to the fact that I dont need to allow UDP ports for DHCP traffic to work on an internal (LAN) interface.
Simple Two interface (WAN and LAN) setup on a Virtual Machine running 2.5.2
WAN = 10.17x.xx.xx / 25
LAN = 192.168.103.1 / 24
DHCP enabled on LAN and PFsense in Firewall / NAT Hybrid Mode.
I can not get reliable DHCP responses to my clients and they are sometimes delayed a LONG time until I add the following rule to my pfsense LAN interface.
Protocol: IPv4 UDP
Dst Port: 67-68
Can someone confirm this is expected behavior.
@tkrausjr you have no need to add any rules on any interface dhcp is enabled. They are auto added an hidden... Look at the full rules..
example these are mine..
if you needed to add a rule for dhcp to work - and you had not rule how would it ever work.. Whatever issue your having is not related to needing a firewall rule to allow for dhcp..
