Basic windows shares



  • I just installed pfsense. I have my lan 10.134.1.0 Pfsense 10.134.1.249

    My WAN 172.25.1.2
    MY opt 172.25.1.10

    On my lan side all shares stopped working except to and from the servers.

    For instance my C_drive is no longer viewable on any other windows xp box

    Does pfsense kill the NetBIOS request on the Lan side?

    Is there any way to stop it?

    Thanks,



  • Well that interesting have you tried to check bypass all firewall rules for the LAN?

  • Are your OPT and WAN bridged?

    Are you trying to find network shares via "My Network Places"?
    This will not work over a router.
    You need to access the network-share via IP directly.



  • Lan and wan are bridged. I just turned off the advanced option "Bypass firewall rules for traffic on the same interface" Did not help.

    What I have found out is that my Mcafee firewalls on our clients have started treating its own subnet as an un-trusted network. I do not know if this is a coincidence it happened the same day I installed the pfsense firewall. To fix it I had to manually put in the IP address for the trusted network on each machine.
