Unable to ping and access the pfsense

  • Hi to all,
    I successfully installed the pfsense in our server. Unfortunately i am unable to ping and connect to pfsense.. Network card and physical device are both ok.. i tested all of this. What are the probable cause of this?? please advice..


  • I already configure my LAN and WAN and assigned a designated IPs.. I checked the logs (option 10).
    tcpdump: WARNING: pflog0: no IPv4 address assigned.
    tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode.
    Listening on pflog0. link type PFLOG/openBSD pflog file), captive size 96 bytes.

    –This is what i've got. I'm only accessing the pfsense server thru console with the monitoring i connect with the server.
    Your reply is highly appreciated. thanks!

    Option 10 is the firewall logs (real time view) not the system log which would be more helpful here.
    Open a shell (option eight) and read the system log:

    clog /var/log/system.log

    What IPs have you set the WAN and LAN to?


  • And what is the IP address of the system on which you are trying to access pfSense? What is reported when you attempt the access? (The error message from the application is nearly always more informative than the "high level summary": "can't access")
