VLAN DHCP Working - No Internet Access

  • Hi all,

    I just recently setup my first pfSense box and was able to get VLAN's setup on both the pfSense itself and the HP Procurve Switch that I am using. We want to add multiple VLAN's for added security in the office and after doing some research I found pfSense to be an ideal solution. The problem is now that I am able to obtain my DHCP on my laptop from my VLAN100 address pool (, but unable to gain internet access.

    I am new to pfSense and have been browsing some docs about firewall and NAT configurations, but I am a little unclear on what needs to be configured. I have been messing around with some port forwarding and outbound NAT setting, but the problem still persists.

    I have created firewall rules since it seems the firewall is default deny, but I'm assuming since DHCP is getting to the client that's not really the issue.

    Sorry if this is the wrong section, I'm a little unsure where the problem lies. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Any rule on VLAN100?

  • @Perry:

    Any rule on VLAN100?

    This is how I have VLAN100 rules setup.

  • Do you have squid (and) squidGuard packages installed by chance?
    If not do this:
    Click "Diagnostics,>Ping,>Select the LAN interface,> try google.com
    copy/paste the output of this back here,,,
    You will no doubt get 100% drops but the return values may help to determine what is dying.
    If you do in fact get replies on the pfSense box you know your routing is jabber wokied somewhere to the vlan…
