Possible Port maping issues.Traffic on mapped ports not going through.[RESOLVED]

  • Hello to everybody!

    I have pfsense (ver 1.2.2 upograded to 1.2.3-RC1 via webGUI)  installed on a PC with 2 network interface cards. The WAN interface is connected via rl0 and the LAN interface is xl0. The interface addresses are:
    WAN – set via DHCP
    LAN – and DHCP is enabled from this interface, with the pfSense box acting as the DCHP server. I have several static leases assigned, and those work as well.
    Internet access works perfect.
    I have several port mappings assigned via NAT (created using the steps available in the documentation here). The map assigned for 443 (HTTPS) and 22 (SSH) are mapped to and work. I also configured a map for RDP connections to one of my hosts that uses the static DHCP lease ( And that’s were the problems begin.

    A firewall rule was created for it, but I cannot establish a connection. When I enable logging for this rule, I can see that the firewall passes the packet, as it is a match, but when I monitor the xl0 (LAN) interface either by using iftop or tcpdump, I cannot see any data being sent to on port 3389 (RDP). I’ve even upgraded to 1.2.3-RC1 in hopes that it is a software glitch, but still no go :(

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,


    Update: The LAN interface connects to one of the WBR-2310's switch interfaces that is used as a switch and wireless access points (DHCP disabled and host address for HTTP access is in the network)

  • Issue was resolved by performing a clean re-install. Did not tyr to restore previous configuration file on new install.
