Cannot ping pfsync interfaces
rswift last edited by
I have setup two servers running v2.01 and I cannot get pfsync to work. I have two dedicated interfaces named pfsync. They are enabled and a rule was created to allow any access. I cannot ping either servers pfsync interface. I am pinging from one server to the other. Also when I try to sync the two servers primary to the backup I always get the following error: a communication error occured while attempting xmlrpc with username admin….. I have connected the interfaces with a crossover cable and I even tried a small switch in between with staight cable. I am new to the redundancy part of pfsense and am hopeful to get it up and running. Thanks for any help.

on the interface you need to allow the pfsync traffic, start with an allow all rule

It might be that your rule is somehow incorrect as in it need to allow ANY protocol and not just TCP/UDP. You will need to make sure that the rule is set on both systems.
Also, make sure you have the password correct in the settings.

By far no expert here, but maybe also check if the IP adresses assigned to the pfSync interfaces have the right subnet mask /24 or something and are different from the WAN and LAN ?
And check firewall rules, see if anything gets blocked in the "status\system logs\firewall". If really paranoid go to the console/putty and run a "tcpdump -en ICMP" check the ping is leaving through the right interface.
