Unable to ping local LAN or gateway

Okay, so I am new to pfSense. I have it up and running with 4 interfaces (one WAN and 3 LANs). I can access the web interface. THere are 3 subnets, one for each LAN. The IP of each interface. is x.x.x.1/24. I am using Microsoft hyper-V to host the pfSense server and other machines. The WAN interface is actually a 192.168.2.x address since it then routes to my Dlink router out to the internet. From the pfSense server, I can ping any machine on the WAN and get replies. However, if I try to ping any machine on any of the LAN interfaces, it fails. ALso, if I try to ping from a client machine to the pfSense interface (x.x.x.1) I get a destination host unreachable message. I have not changed any routing rules or anything. This is basically the default setup.
What am I missing?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

In cases such as this, I always start with the firewall logs (Status > System Logs > Firewall) tab. IF you haven't setup any rules yet the traffic is probably getting blocked. If this is the case, you will want to visit the rules (Firewall > Rules) and add rules which all traffic out of the different LAN interfaces.
