Access webconsole w/ pfsense configured as access point



  • I'm unable to access the web interface after setting up pfsense as an access point. Currently, I have the wifi interface bridged to the lan, and the lan interface set statically at 192.168.3.253. The lan interface is hooked up to a m0n0wall router with an ip of 192.168.3.254. I'm able to connect via wifi from a test laptop & see all the computers over the network, and the gateway on the laptop shows as 192.168.3.254 (the m0n0wall router) when i run ipconfig.

    When I try to access the web interface by going to https://192.168.3.253 or even ping it, there's no reply.

    How do I make it so that I can access the web interface remotely (from wifi)?

    Thanks!



  • What is the IP address of the laptop?

    What does laptop shell command tracert 192.168.3.254 show?



  • The IP of the laptop is 192.168.3.158. A tracert 192.168.3.254 shows this:



  • Sorry, typo: I meant to ask: What does laptop shell command tracert 192.168.3.253 show? (How to get from the laptop to pfSense.)



  • It shows the same thing as the screenshot above, just with .253 at the end instead of .254. I just rebooted the AP again and now the webconsole is accessible  ???

    Thanks for the help & I'll update this thread if it becomes inaccessible again!
