Can't access LAN from wireless



  • As per topic I can't seem to access my LAN devices from the Wireless.

    I am using PFSENSE 2.

    The interfaces on my PFSENSE box are below. I have a wirelss NIC in the box using it as a WAP.

    From a wireless connection I can ping the gateway of both the LAN and WAP gateways but can't get any further onto the LAN from a wireless connection.

    Rules: Lan

    Any ideas?



  • Please elaborate on can't get any further onto the LAN from a wireless connection, for example, "I did … and I saw ...".

    Do you get different results by IP address and by hostname?

    The counters suggest you may have changed firewall rules without restarting. Did you reset firewall states? (From web GUI: Diagnostics -> States, click on Reset States tab then click on the Reset button.)



  • You have the rules backwards. All traffic is filtered where it initiates, you'll never see LAN source traffic on wireless nor wireless sourced traffic on LAN.
