Firewall Blocking Yahoo Attachements



  • All pfSense Lovers,

    I am using pfSense 2.0 RC 3 (June 2011 Release). I have allowing everything on the LAN, but i am facing a problem. LAN Users are able to open, login in there yahoo mail account. But they are not able to upload or download the attachements.

    Kindly help.

    VT..



  • First switch to 2.0 release.

    are you using multi-WAN ? -> use sticky connections and try again.
    are you using squid ? -> try bypassing squid for the source IP of the client which wants to download an attachment
    try an allow "any to any" for "any" protocl fiewall rule on the LAN interface on top of all other rules.

    I am already using pfSense 2.0 RC3. I am not using Multi WAN. There is one LAN and WAN.
    Will you explain in detail.

    Regards

    Yes, I did.
    I think it makes no sense to search for a possible bug if you are using and old RC version. pfsense 2.0 stable is out and you should switch to it. SYSTEM -> Firmware -> Updater settings -> Default Auto Update URLs: Chose the version you like (32bit or 64bit) and the update.

    You didn't answer my question you are running squid or any other package ?

    I am using squid & squidguard.



  • Then you should enable logging in squidguard and then check if squidguard is blocking the attachment.
    Better way is to temporarily disable squidguard and test again.

    If the attachment is still blocked with squidguard enabled, then bypass the proxy for a client pc and then try with this client again if you can download the attachment. If it works than you know where the problem is.



  • Thanks for reply. By google in forum, i found the answer by allowing IP Address in URL at Proxy Filter.

    Thanks for your reply and help.
