PFsense device can ping everything except another PFsense device

  • I have two PFsense devices on the same network for the WAN interface with a common gateway of

    I have a firewall rule to allow ICMP. I can ping everything else on the network except they cannot ping each other.

    I am a bit confused by this.

    The reason I am doing this is to test a private subnet under each one and the connectivity between.

    The "Block private networks" is not selected on the WAN settings.

  • Please elaborate. The problem is with ping by IP address or ping by name or both?

  • Forget it all. Everything works fine now.

    Turns out one of my PFsense devices was glitchy. Reinstalled from scratch and restored the information and it worked fine.

    I wish there was a way to find out what made it so buggy.
