Show all currently connected devices

  • Hi everyone,

    I tried searching the boards but did not find my answer. I also apologize if my question is in the wrong place.

    I am just getting this set up for the first time and I have had everything running pretty well for about 4 or 5 hours now. But I am still playing and trying things out. At the moment I only have a few things on the network. My desktop, my  laptop wirelessly though the AP, my cell phone though the AP, and my network printer.

    I staticly assigned the AP and printer IP addresses on those devices and everything works properly. But, is there a place in the pfSense webConfigurator where I can find all the devices plugged into my network? I know where to find a list of all the DHCP assigned devices, but I am looking for a listing of all the devices connected to the network.

  • You can tell everything that's connected to the firewall or Internet recently under Diag>ARP. Anything that hasn't connected to the Internet or the firewall itself isn't visible to the firewall, so you won't be able to see that.

  • If pfSense is acting as a wireless AP you can get a list of associated devices on Status -> Wireless.

  • Netgate Administrator

    And you can also list all the devices which have acquired an IP address via DHCP (if you're using pfSense for DHCP) in Status: DHCP:
