Only MSN? What version of pfSense are you running?
hi and thanks for the reply
i am using 1.2-beta-2
yes only msn is the complaint from my clients on 3 different pfsense boxes with speed touch dsl router in bridge mode
i checked the diagnosting: system logs: firwall, i found the followings:
act: x, time: Jul 31:23:36:41, if: wan, Source: (tos 0x0, ttl 1, id 38426, offset 0, falgs [DF], proto: IGMP (2), lengh: 28) 192.168.5.1
and this message apear every time a client try to access msn massenger, with error
Same probleme here :(
pfSense must be the issue, I tried with two modems (a Netopia and a Linksys)
When I change the modems to routeur mode and use pfSense in the middle with DHCP, MSN works fine.
But it does not work while pfSense is the one connecting using PPPoE
WEIRD ??? ???
Changing the MTU to 1400 solved the problem.

Now I must find a more standard way to solve this problem.
