  • After disabling gateway monitoring on openvpn interfaces the loop ended.
    But I will get a lot of "501 - Not Implemented" on webconfigurator. I have to do a lot of resending the page in web browser to do some work.


  • Not enough information here to tell what can be the cause.
    Probably some routing issues or mismatches on subnet configuration?


  • I downgraded to
    2.1-BETA1 (amd64)
    built on Sat Feb 2 01:46:53 EST 2013

    With this version I don't have this problem.
    If have 2 gateway groups with 3 wans inside and 1 wan (tier1 and tier5 in the groups) which is down.

    One group is used in openvpn.


  • Try a newer snap?

    Though I would wait for one not dated Saturday as it has GW route issues, though nothing too major :P


  • Meanwhile I updated to
    2.1-BETA1 (amd64)
    built on Sat Feb 9 23:46:16 EST 2013

    Every 15 sec it reload the filters and ipsec tunnels stop forwarding for a few seconds.

    It says:
    php: : IPSEC: One or more IPsec tunnel endpoints has changed its IP. Refreshing

    But that's not true.

  • hmm I don't see the VPN issue. I have a tunnel from an x86 box to an x64 box in a datacenter both now running the last Feb 09 build and the tunnel has been up since I updated which was a few hours ago.

    You using IP or name to make the connection? If the name maybe something is happening when it tries to re-resolve it or something silly.


  • I think it's because one interface in the gateway group is down and the reload script is doing to much work.
    The second problem could be the openvpn client which didn't come up completely.

    I think if there are problems with some interfaces the router should work allways stable.


  • sometimes I see:
    Feb 10 15:34:58 pfsense-hd php: : GATEWAYS: We did not find the first tier of the gateway group WAN! That's odd.
    Feb 10 15:34:58 pfsense-hd php: : Gateways status could not be determined, considering all as up/active. (Group: Internet)
    Feb 10 15:34:58 pfsense-hd php: : Gateways status could not be determined, considering all as up/active. (Group: WAN)

    I already removed and added the (disabled) wan interface on the group. The script should see the interface and know that it's down.


  • Can you share your configuration information.
    Just the log does not tell anything about your architecture and guess work is hard for troubleshooting anything.


  • I will do this, but I need sometime for anonymization.
    I wish there were an anonymization function at export.


  • @ermal: you got PM


  • I updated now my 4th pfsense from 1. Feb to 2.1-BETA1 (amd64) built on Fri Feb 15 04:33:17 EST 2013.
    I have the same problem again.
    If one interface unwired or for other reason down (gateway don't reply on ping) it reloads the config every 15 seconds.
    Racoon is restarted cyclic and VPN is unuasable.
