Error in application: "disk or network error (Error 3043)", pfSense blocking?



  • Got this error:

    disk or network error (Error 3043)

    I just installed pfsense in my network last 2 months ago and everything works fine and okey. And until yesterday when i install the shortcut icon of my database file.  When I open my database shortcut icon, it displays an error message says "disk or network error (Error 3043)".

    Question:
    Is it possible that the pfsense firewall is blocking the connection from the database to clients workstation?

    BTW, here's the setup of my network:

    Thanks….........



  • Which of the 2 client workstations on your diagram are you referring to?

    If the 192.168.2.x clients then yes - pfSense sits between them and the database server.  If the 192.168.0.x clients then no.



  • yes client workstations 192.168.2.x. is the firewall blocking the connections? 
    How and where can i configure it?
    Thanks..



  • Examine the firewall settings on the 192.168.2.1 interface (LAN?) of pfSense - it may be that you have a rule blocking it.  It could also be that your shortcut relies on NetBIOS, which is broadcast based and hence won't work with a routed network without a little help.  Without knowing more, it's all guesswork though ;)



  • I already check the Firewall Rules and i added the ip address of the database server which is 192.168.0.253.  I put 2 rules:
          1. Source = any and destination = 192.168.0.253
          2. Source = 192.168.0.253 and destination = any

    I tried running the shortcut, still it has the same error message.

    What are other possible problems why i have this error message?

    How can i resolve this issue?

    Thanks…...



  • I've already mentioned other possible problems - search my previous reply for NetBIOS ;)

    Did you put rule (1) on the 192.168.2.x network interface?  Is it before any other rules?
