PFsense 2.02 PPTP Wan connection doesn't work



  • Hello,

    I post here an information how to setup the wan to connect via PPTP to an DSL Provider in Austria (A1 Telekom Austria) that works in PFsense 2.01.

    I was so stupid and update the Alix box to 2.02 because then the same issue as before, wan is up ssh to an external server works but no website will be opened!
    Then I try several MTU setting without sucess.

    WTHIGOH!

    Do you have a rule for it?



  • Hello supermule,

    first thank's for your reply!

    You mean a rule for the WAN interface like:
    Proto  Source Port Destination Port Gateway Queue Schedule Description
    any   *         * *                  *         *         none   Firewall Access

    But why I am able to connect via ssh to an external server?
    Why I don't need a rule in PFsense 2.01 to access external webpages?

    Do you have an outbound rule for the interface?



  • Hello supermule,

    what exactly to you mean with an "outbound rule"?
    Why I am able to connect to an external server with ssh but no website is shown on any browser and from any client in the Internal Network.
    If there is not rule that allows connections to the WAN interface how the SSH is possible?
