Traffic logs



  • I just set up a WAP filtering bridge using 1.0-beta1 and all seems to be working.

    ADSL(192.168.5.1) <–> pfsense, fxp0(192.168.5.254) -- pfsense, ath0 (192.168.5.254) <--> wifi pcs

    My question is to do with traffic log constantly logging

    1. 457076 rule 36/0(match): block in on fxp0: 192.168.5.254 > 0.0.0.0:  pfsync 676

    2. 000352 rule 36/0(match): block in on fxp0: 192.168.5.254 > 0.0.0.0:  pfsync 228
    000056 rule 36/0(match): block in on bridge0: 192.168.5.254 > 0.0.0.0:  pfsync 228

    Why?

    Also rules on WAN work fine, I don't have any rules on LAN except to allow DHCP back to WAN but everything works anyway. I can ssh or connect to 80 without any problem. Are there implied rules on the LAN?



  • What version are you running?  This is fixed in the latest prebeta2 version.

  • I understand from previous threads that the filtering bridge blocks everything unless there's a rule.

    I don't see this though. WAN blocks everything by default, LAN allows everything by defualt.

    If I set BLOCK rule on LAN

    Proto  Source  Port  Destination  Port  Gateway  Description 
    X *         *              *     *                 * *               block all

    I can stilll connect to 80 and ssh. there doesn't seem to be any filtering on LAN



  • System -> Advanced -> Enable Filtering Bridge

    There is an anti logout rule at lan (so you don't shut down access to the webgui accidently). You can disable that at system>advanced as well.
