Getting hundreds of 'block drop in log all label "Default deny rule"'

  • I am running pfSense within VMware, connected to a router in modem-mode, using ppoe.
    There are two switches between pfSense and the modem.

    My firewall is reporting hundreds of,

    @1 scrub on em1 all fragment reassemble
    @1 block drop in log all label "Default deny rule"

    These are happening every few seconds.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I guess one of the questions is, where is this "Default deny rule", and can I turn off the firewall temporarily?

  • ok, so it's normal for a stateful firewall  ::),14259.0.html

    It just makes it difficult IMHO to see proper firewall issues in amongst all this "harmless" noise.
    Maybe better filtering options could help here.

    2.1 has a lot better filtering in the firewall log.

    You can also add your own block rules without log set to match traffic that you don't want to see in the logs.
