Gateway drops and never comes back
Hi there -
I'm running in to a new problem with 2.5.x. I'm noticing that one of my gateways (Comcast Internet, DHCP acquired address) seems to disappear momentarily from dpinger's perspective. My Gateway / Gateway Group configuration isn't super interesting, but I could provide it if interested. The Internet connections does come back, but pfSense keeps it down thinking there is packet loss. It's as if it forgot to check. I checked and dpinger for that interface was still running. My other gateway is a manually configured line and doesn't have these issues.
Is the Gateway logs I can see (at failure time a few entries like this, and then no more)
WAN2ONOPT1_DHCP 18.104.22.168: sendto error: 50
However, if I login to pfSense and run dpinger manually, I can verify that pfSense can send packets through this network successfully
e.g. the following succeeds
dpinger -f -B 10.1.10.229 22.214.171.124
Finally, if I force down the Gateway and then bring it back up, that seems to bring things back up to normal.
Would appreciate any help. Happy to provide more configuration details.
I have the same problem with my customer but with a different version of pfSense, and our Comcast is not on DHCP. We have a monitor up to let us know when Comcast has issues, so when it stops having issues we can manually down/up the gateway as you are doing.
