Firewall drops all traffic on OPT1 interface even though rules are in place



  • I've used PFSense for a long time, but this is the first time I've ever had a LAN segement on OPT1.

    I've got two completely seperate networks on LAN and OPT1. The LAN segement is working perfectly, but the PFSense firewall is dropping ALL and EVERY traffic on the OPT1 interface, even though there are rules permitting certain traffic.

    OPT1 IP Address: 192.168.100.1 (OPT1 alias is MYFLO)

    Ping from client to PFSense firewall:

    PFSense firewall rules:

    Still dropping packets though:

    I'm so sure this is something so bloody obvious, but I can't see it for the life of me. This is 2.0-RC1 so if it belongs on the 2.0 board I apologise.



  • Did you explicitly setup the ICMP Type in the firewall rule?  Its right underneath the Protocol once you select ICMP.  You will need Any or at least Echo Reply.

    Correct, except Echo, not Echo Reply if you're allowing pings.
