We run a simple Draytek box as a first modem/firewall before passing everyhing via pfsense into our network.
Logging of draytek activity works fine when being passed via pfsense 2.0.1 - but have just built a test box using the latest 2.1 snapshot and everthing works as expected except that the traffic from draytek to the syslog application on the network side of pfsense just vanishes - nothing in any log as why or where it went. No error when the "live" pfsense config was loaded into the test box - just all the traffic on port 514 vanishes.
Applications running are pfblock, squid & cron - there is an IPSEC tunnel running as well
Close the test box and restart the live box - logging resumes no problem.

I would recheck the option to block private networks. If you changed interface types, you might have re-enabled that option to block.
No - not that - all private addresses are allowed on WAN
Second thought - the private network was the clue - I had forgotten to force mac address of test machine to be the same as live machine - now works OK
What an idiot.
