Upgrade to 2.0.1, missing implicit rules



  • I installed pfSense 2.0.1 on a spare Alix box and restored the config from a working 1.2.3-RELEASE.

    I don't know if this is actually a supported upgrade method, but my goal was to keep the existing firewall in it's know good working state.

    The restore seemed to go well enough, and all of my rules and configs seemed to import properly.

    I did have to create 2 rules, one to allow my local machines to access the NTP server, and another to allow my Nagios/Cacti box to access the SNMP server.  I believe both of these rules were implicit before.

    In addition, I can no longer ping the internal interface.  I'm assuming I can create a rule for that as well, but before I do, I'm wondering if there is just a setting I might need to change somewhere.

    Thanks for any help.

    Create the rule for icmp just like you did for cacti and ntp



  • Is there a best practice suggestion for an ICMP rule?
