Issue with static route
I have two pfSense routers:
10.0.0.1 - Router 1
10.0.0.2 - Router 2
22.214.171.124 - Example target
I have created a static route on 10.0.0.1 for 126.96.36.199/32 with 10.0.0.2 as the gateway. If a computer using 10.0.0.1 as its gateway connects to 188.8.131.52, the connection will last for 60 seconds and it then drops. In this case, I am connecting to 184.108.40.206 via SSH. This setup used to work when Router 2 was a DD-WRT system.
Do I need to make any special firewall rules on Router 1 and/or Router 2 for this to work? Both Router 1 and Router 2 are NAT gateways as I have two internet connections. Most of the hosts on my network use 10.0.0.1 whereas a handful use 10.0.0.2.
Any help would be appreciated.
do you have routes on router2 to the router-1 subnet ?
No I do not. What do you suggest that I create?
I just thought I would report back. It was Firewall related as the 'Bypass firewall rules for traffic on the same interface' option under 'System' -> 'Advanced' did the trick. I applied this setting to router 1 and now it's all good.
Thanks for your help!
