Https sites don't work behind pfsense

  • Hi all,

    I have setup a failover scenario with pfsense, which globally works good. On the two pfsense boxes I installed also the Squid package, which is working too.

    My problem is that some https sites (especially a remote banking site that relies heavily on Java) don't work anymore (they are very very slow, timeouts often occur). This issue is clearly related to pfsense, because if I try to browse the same sites bypassing pfsense boxes (I am directly attached to the ISP router), I have no problem.

    At the beginning I thought that the problem was related to Squid (configured as transparent proxy), but Squid can manage only http traffic and the redirection regards only port 80, not 443.

    How can I fix this?

    Kind Regards - Daniele

  • If you have load balancing enable stickies but for the last to work OK you have to upgrade to latest RC.

  • Thank you for the reply.

    I don't have load balancing enabled, only failover. Do I have to update?
