Ssh connection hangs with static route

  • Hello,
    on 1.2.2 I have set a static route to a test network:
    linux client <-> lan:pfsense:lan<-> lan:internal router:lan2<->linux server

    from the client I can start an ssh session ang give commands to the server. after some seconds however the session freezes. If I set a static route on the client (same gateway set on pfsense) the session works fine.

    I've set the Bypass firewall rules for traffic on the same interface, but nothing changes
    No logs on the pfsense :(

    any idea on what's going on ?



  • I'm sorry to bump, but …

    on the pfsense I have a static route set for network -> gw

    if I add a static route to the client (route add -net netmask gw everything works



  • can you give this linux client <-> lan:pfsense:lan<-> lan:internal router:lan2<->linux server
    with IP addresses?

  • sorry for the long wait before the answer. I have not noticed the reply :)

    linux client <-> lan:pfsense:lan<-> lan:internal router:lan2<->linux server

    IPs are: (client) <-LAN1-> (default GW) <-static route to> (internal router) <-LAN2-> (server)
