[SOLVED] VLAN - Can't access/ping hosts
I'm having this issue where I cannot ping hosts or access them thru interfaces some of them are VLANs.
My setup is like this:
DSL Modem –--> PfSense Box ----> HP ProCurve 1810-24G v2
3 NICs on the PfSense Box, 1 dedicated to WAN, 1 dedicated to LAN (Switch Port 1, excluded from VLANs) and the last one is
Tagged on Port 2 on the ProCurve for VLANs only.
HP Switch setup
Ports 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24 Untagged for VLAN100
Port 3 Untagged for cascading Dell Switch for VLAN150
Ports 15, 17, 19, 21 Untagged for VLAN200
Rest of ports are excluded for Tagging/Untagging (LAN)
em0 - WAN
em1 - LAN
em2 - VLANs:
VLAN100 - SERVER
VLAN150 - LAB
VLAN200 - ISCSI
What I can do:
DHCP on every VLAN (ISCSI, LAB, SERVER) interface
Ping each VLAN Gateway (no matter which interface [192.168.50.1, 192.168.100.1, 192.168.150.1, 192.168.200.1])
Ping LAN's devices/hosts
Manage VMs on the Management interface (LAN)
Get to the outside world from any interface.
What I can't do:
Ping SERVER interface's hosts from LAN, LAB or ISCSI interfaces
Access VMs on the SERVER interface from LAN, LAB or ISCSI interfaces
Ping LAB interface's devices/PCs from LAN, SERVER or ISCSI interface
Access PCs/WiFi Printer on the LAB interface from LAN, SERVER or ISCSI interfaces
I have created rules for every single interface to allow everything, I checked if NAT was doing something weird but everything seems ok (I'm attaching some screen captures), I have re-checked every basic/advanced setting on the PfSense box and the ProCurve Switch and they're supposed to be working as planned, but I simply can't ping thru interfaces.
I had something like this maybe 3 years ago but can't find my notes on that, maybe it's so easy that I'm overseeing it.
Any hint or help will be much more appreciated.

Is everyone using the same gateway?
e.g. are all your servers, workstations, default gateway the HP procurve switch?
Thank you, you reminded me to check my server's network config and there was a typo on it.
Everything is working as supposed to. ;)

I have this exact same problem… can you guys give more detail on what you did?
aren't the gateways on each host supposed to be set to the VLAN gateway?
