ALIX 2D3 lights



  • Hi Everyone,

    I have an ALIX 2D3 board running pfsense.

    What do the lights on the back (assuming that the network sockets are on the front) mean? There seem 2 be three. The first one is lit, the second one is flashing, and the third one is off.

    I am using this box as an OpenVPN client using the cryptodev engine.

    Any clues are appreciated

    Thanks



  • Go to the Interfaces menu->Assign LED's.

    I don't see any option for "Assign LED's" in the interface menu

    It depends on what version you have. The first light is a power indicator.

    On some installs, the second light flashing means there is an alert.

    If you install the blinkled package on 1.2.3 or 2.0 you will get that Assign LEDs option and you can tie LEDs 2 and 3 to a network interface for an activity indicator.



  • An alert? Ok this is worrying now as this board it getting preped for a customer far far away..

    Everything seems to be working fine though. Where can I find more info if there is anything wrong?

    It would show in the GUI. The most common reason would be that you turned on SSH and it's alerting you that the keys are done.

    Or it could be anything else (filter rules didn't load, config error, etc)

    Thanks jimp!

    Phew, when you said alert, I started to thing hardware failure!

    It was simply that the SSH keys had been created :)
