Lan routing help needed
Now, I am trying to see what the steps are to get traceroute to work across my 2 lan subnets. I have it setup currently with my wireless lan on one interface (OPT1) with a 192.168.3.0/24 and my lan on another interface (LAN) with a subnet of 192.168.1.0/24. Both can traceroute to the outside internet (WAN) but not to each other, everything else works though ping, intranet, etc.
Now my reading so far has suggested I should be creating a static route, my question is then, do I need to create another gateway too? When I go to routing page and try to add one it defaults to the wan gateway, is that correct?
Thanks in advance.
for starters: you don't need a static route!
Pfsense automagically generates the routes for all interfaces configured on the device.
Static routes should only be used for subnets located on a different router when there is no dynamic routing protocol used. (in pfsense >2.0 it even says so in the web-interface)
Only thing you need to do is add a firewall rule to PASS traffic from one subnet to the other and (if needed) the other way around.
You need to make sure these rules don't have a specific gateway specified and that they match before a possible rule that would send your packets to your isp's gateway.
Thanks for the reply, I miss understood the search results I did before posting and now understand routes better. I have tried all the of the pass rules I can think of without success, it still times out on all hops after the first hop. 192.168.3.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on the network the traceroute was started on.
without more info we can't pinpoint the problem
please show some screenshots of interface settings / firewall rules / routes / …
Oops, sorry to waste your time on this. The problems was I wasn't thinking about the firewalls on the computers I was trying to traceroute to. I didn't realize they were blocking the traceroute's ping. Thanks again for your help.
