Pfctl: Syntax error



  • 1.0.1-SNAPSHOT-02-14-2007

    System Logs show:

    php: : There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:116: syntax error pfctl: Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded - The line in question reads [116]: pass in quick on $lan route-to { ( LOADBALANCER ) , ( LOADBALANCER ) } round-robin from 172.16.0.0/16 to any keep state label "USER_RULE: Default LAN -> any"

    php: : New alert found: There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:116: syntax error pfctl: Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded The line in question reads [116]: pass in quick on $lan route-to { ( LOADBALANCER ) , ( LOADBALANCER ) } round-robin from 172.16.0.0/16 to any keep state label "USER_RULE: Default LAN -> any"

    The error is shown twice.

    I should delete the rule and try again?



  • If I have the default LAN rule, that works fine (ie it is parsed fine). If I then change that rule so that the gateway is LOADBALANCER (that is what my pool is called) then I get this error.



  • reverting back to 1.0.1-SNAPSHOT-02-09-2007  and the rule is parsed ok.



  • Try upgrading and redo the load balancing pools.
