Web console unresponsive after restoring config



  • Hello,

    I just received some Netgate routers in (running 2.0.1), and I am noticing the web interface intermittently takes at least 60 seconds to go to the next screen.

    I understand that I can ignore the 'NID not found' messages (http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/DMA_and_LBA_Errors), but I also am getting messages logged complaining that the CF card isn't mounted:

    Does anyone know what the problem could be?  I have another router in production using the same SDCFH-004G card OK.

    Thanks,

  • I believe it is only after I restore my configuration that the web console intermittently runs unbelievably slow.  After exporting the config with 'do not backup package configuration' checked, the mount errors no longer appear after restoring the config on the new router.  However, the intermittent unresponsiveness still occurs.

    Could this be because the new router isn't connected to the internet yet?  It is configured with IPSec tunnels and an OpenVPN server.  SSH sessions also occasionally get disconnected, logging the 'SSHD error writing operation not permitted message' noted above.

    Thanks,

    Todd



  • After restoring the config and connecting the router to a mock network with internet access, the responsiveness issue seems to be resolved.

    I have some firewall aliases and IPSec connections configured with dynamic DNS addresses, perhaps the GUI depends on resolving these?

    Thanks,

    Todd
