Pfflowd



  • Dear all,

    I am getting a error while install or uninstall pfflowd,

    Here is the error

    XML error: not object found!



  • Hi, I get the same error when pfsense tries to reinstall the OpenVPN Exporter package after firmware upgrades…


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    That is one of the rougher parts of 2.0. When that error is generated, it's from badly formatted or parsed XML somewhere, but it's hard to say why it's happening at certain times and not others.



  • Thanks for your reply, is there any way to remove the package which is causing the problem manually to be "clean" again? I can't uninstall it either..


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    You'll either have to backup the config, edit out the package data, and restore - or edit it out by hand.

    If that is the only package you have, you could make a backup, check the box to omit package configs, and then restore that config.

    What snapshot are you on?

    I'm running one from June 3rd in a VM and I just installed and uninstalled pfflowd without error.

    Did that and worked. Thanks!

    I've run some more tests (including a firmware update to today's snapshot) and I still can't get pfflowd to break. It installs and reinstalls OK every time.

    I do some an error on OpenVPN client export, but not the XML error.


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    I figured out what caused the OpenVPN client export error and it should be in the next snapshot (or the one after, if one is building now)



  • Great!

    Thanks for the hard work, 2.0 really is amazing! Currently load balancing over 3 wan links + OpenVPN is stable so far for me with latest snapshot. Next I'll try with traffic shaping.
    Layer 7 though seems to work for some protocols but not for edonkey or bittorrent.
    With Snapshot 7th June it also consumed 100% of one cpu core so I had to disable it.



  • i am using 2.0-Beta2 build on Fri May 21.
    Can you please give me the detail how to edit config file?

    Go to Diagnostics > Backup/Restore, and download a backup. Open it up in a text editor, and search for parts of the config that reference the pfflowd package. This can get a little tricky if you aren't careful, as if you don't remove things properly it can leave you with a broken config. After you have removed the package info, go back to Diagnostics > Backup/Restore and restore that backup file.
