Can not access lan or inbound



  • I've only been using ver 2 for a few days, and am running it with in a KVM. So my issues may be due to a misconfig or kvm.

    However we have used kvm for  over a year to run some servers. BUt this is the 1-st bsd under kvm for us.

    The issue I have is that access to LAN stops after some hours.

    I can get to psense from KVM console to test ping.

    can ping out using WAN
    can not ping the LAN network.
    can not access webgui

    From a computer on the LAN, i can not ssh into pfsense.

    To fix I have to reboot .
    then all the above works.

    the nics are e1000

    i just rebooted and here is the version status:
    2.0-RC1 (amd64)
    built on Sat Apr 9 14:48:31 EDT 2011

    Update available. Click Here to view update.

    so I'l update and get back with results.



  • after the upgrade:

    work:
    access webgui from off site
    ssh from lan to pfsense
    ping lan and wan from console

    not working:

    ssh in from offsite.  i use port 5922 and have a nat rule.  this worked last night.  i tried rmv and re add the nat/rule. same result

    ping from offsite.  i just added the rule to wan.  will re check syntax

    I am using 64bit ver. is 32 better to test?

    and I can give access to this test system if testing want to be done by devs.



  • @robfantini:

    after the upgrade:
    . . .
    not working:

    ssh in from offsite.  i use port 5922 and have a nat rule.  this worked last night.  i tried rmv and re add the nat/rule. same result

    ping from offsite.  i just added the rule to wan.  will re check syntax

    Anything relevant in the firewall log? Does a packet capture on the WAN interface show a ssh access attempt?



  • the logs did show  the rule worked .

    However getting  I could not get  to the target computer.  the thing is I could at times..

    I'll have tried rc-1 and  daily updates [ as of Sat].

    My issues were that I could connect, and later not.

    I probably have  something not setup correctly…  I have used  V1.23 for years..

    To eliminate the possibility that my issues are KVM related, I'll install 1.23 in a kvm, restore our current production config, change the addresses  and make sure that works.

    If you have any suggestion please respond.



  • A few hours ago I  made adjustments to gateway , nics and upgraded to latest snapshot, and problems are solved.

    the issues were possibly  caused by adding a 3-rd nic and not configuring it correctly.

    in addition the lan has another pfsense running in production, and most computers use that as the gateway.

    i was having issues with port forward to computers which had the other pfsense set as their  router.
