DIOCADDRULE: Device Busy - Error

  • Hello Everybody,

    Recently, my pfSense box gave me a following error message:

    php: : There were error(s) loading the rules: pfctl: DIOCADDRULE: Device busy - The line in question reads [ DIOCADDRULE]:

    Can anybody suggest what would be the best way to find the source of the problem, since I believe it is related to some firewall rules?

    Currently I'm using 1.2.3-RELEASE built on Sun Dec 6 23:21:36 EST 2009

    Thanks in advance,


  • I'm having the same issue.

    Did you manage to fix it?

    For me, deactivating traffic shaper did the job. But this is not a solution :-(

    Still searching for help.
