IPsec VPN



  • Hello,

    I want to ask how PFsense monitoring IPsec tunnel status?

    because i have running IPsec tunnel ( everything works just fine ), but Dashboard shows that IPsec tunnel is inactive.

    Thank you.

    It depends on the tunnel.

    If it's a "mobile" tunnel setup, then pfSense can't really accurately see the status.

    If it's a normal style, it reads the SAD and SPD info from the IPsec daemon to determine if it has fully established both Phase 1 and Phase 2.

    I'm using IPsec in Transport mode ( GRE tunnel passing through ).

    Thank you.
