Unable to communicate to pfSense.com. Please check DNS, default gateway, etc.



  • Hi,

    Am new in PFSense. I have installed it and it works well. After setting the LAN and WAN adresses Interfaces as following;
    LAN: –> 192.168.22.252
    WAN: --> 192.168.100.206
    Gateway : 192.168.100.230

    I have enbaled the DNS forwarder in addition i have entered in the General Setup config as the dsn server adress : 192.168.100.245

    For the LAN DHCP configuration : DNS Server--> 192.168.22.252 and the defaultgateway: 192.168.22.252

    Am using Vmware and the ping works well but the problem that the dns server in pfsense appears that he didn't work well.
    I have to add more packages in Packages section but it shows :
    Unable to communicate to pfSense.com. Please check DNS, default gateway, etc.

    Any Idea... ???

    try setting the firewall's DNS to 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4 and see if that works. If it does, then your internal DNS server on 192.168.100.245 may not be working properly.
