Bridging problem



  • I'm working with a private line to HK from the US. Currently OPT1 and LAN are bridged, all traffic on OPT1 and LAN is allowed in the firewall rules. OPT1 is connected directly to a cisco 2800 router (192.168.16.10/24) which is connected to HK to another cisco (10.0.0.249/24), then to China through another cisco (192.168.123.249/24). LAN is connected to a switch which on a 192.168.16.0/24 network. The problem comes up when transfering files over the OPT1 interface from the 10.0.0.0/24 network to the LAN. Connections start just fine, but after a max of 248kb that transfers it just dies completely. If I connect the Cisco directly to the LAN it works just fine, but I do not want to have it setup that way. I've attached a network diagram to understand the network setup easier.

    Does anyone have any ideas beyond changing the 10.0.0.x network into a subnet that falls in pfsense's network (192.168.0.1/16)? I think this would fix the issue, but this would require a lot of changes for something that should work anyway.




  • Still having this issue, even now while running 1.0-SNAPSHOT-09-26-06…

    oh and I forgot to say that transfers from PRC (192.168.123.4/24) to LAN (192.168.16.20/24) works perfectly, and why I'm so confused with this problem.



  • Anyone have any ideas?! I'm open to suggestions to try…



  • Sounds like either:

    Interfaces WAN -> Block bogon or block private is checked
    or
    You need static routes setup



  • Good idea, but neither are checked, and static routes are setup.
    LAN  10.0.0.0/24  192.168.16.10  China VPN



  • FYI, Enable filtering bridge is now checked, and rules added for the OPT1 interface. Everything seems to be working fine now… What a headache...
