Captive Portal break Ipsec Tunnels [SOLVED]

  • Hi.

    I have a strange issue to report.
    Pfsense 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386) + 3 xDSL in Gateway Group with failover connections + Squid (transparent mode) + Squidguard + DHCP enabled + 2 IpSec tunnels actived.
    Today I need also to enable Captive Portal.
    But when I try to enable this the IpSec tunnels are interrupted immediately.
    I have noticed another detail: in Status-> System Logs-> Firewall all rows turn green in the "act" column.

    Can you help me ?
    Thanks in advance.


  • Captive portal will block all traffic in from the remote IPsec network if it's enabled on the local interface of that connection, you have to add an allowed IP entry for that subnet.

  • Dear cmb,

    can you explain in detail this solution ?



  • I've specified the remote Nework in the "Allowed IP Address" tab in the Captive Portal.

    Thank you so much.
