No acces on linux system but on windows works perfectly



  • Hi there,

    I'm using pfSense for a firewall project and it's working perfect for filtering etc. but I have a problem with one thing: I can't connect to either pfSense nor the firewall on the network when there is a cisco switch between my laptop and pfsense and when i connect the laptop directly on the lan interface it works. It only occurs when i'm on my linux mint 8 installation and not when i'm on my windows disk.

    Anyone any idea's?



  • this is a little too vague :(  can you give more details?  a network map/description?



  • Yes ofcourse sorry.
    This is a network scheme of the network: http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/3914/networkexample.jpg
    In the switch is everything default,
    Windows is windows 7
    Linux laptop contains linux mint 8 and on second disk windows 7 (where internet and firewall connection works) this is installed on second drive, nearly there

    network: 192.168.2.0
    ip adres def. gateway: 192.168.2.1
    Server ip: 192.168.2.2
    DHCP range: 192.168.2.10 - 192.168.2.245

    Firewall pfsense rules:
    block all traffic
    allow port 80
    allow port 53
    allow port 443
    allow icmp
    allow port 137 and 138

    firewall is reachable can be connected by a special port xx93 and has a ssl certificate.

    If you need anymore info ask, because i'm really lost here :P
