Arpresolve



  • Hi,

    At one of my schools i have dell r310 running esxi

    we have a pfsense 2.0 VM running and as of late we've been losing WAN connectivity once or twice a week.
    i've posted about this in the multiwan section of the forum 2 weeks ago, since then i've disabled the secondary wan interface, and removed the gateway group. The problem remains the same it seems

    anyone know whats going on and how to solve it?

  • Hi, I have a similar problem.. did you find a solution to this?



  • thus far the problem seems to have been solved

    we had 2 wan connections but one of them had been offline for a long time (issue's with the isp)
    the problem occured weekly, each time it had something todo with dhcp lease expiring and problem to renew them ….

    once we managed to get our secondary wan functioning again like it should, the problem went away.( a month now )
