Internet access problem



  • hi,

    i have a pfsense installed with 2 nics. 1 public and the other private with the 192.168.1.0/24 block. from my pfsense box i could ping for example 8.8.8.8 so i know that the packet goes out to the internet. What i want is for my internal network (192.168.1.0/24)  to surf the internet. I have already changed the gateway of my internal network to the pfsense ip which is 192.168.1.254. I have been googling for some time but i was not able to get it going. Can someone help?

    thanks,
    mon



  • If you can ping the internet by IP but not surf, I suspect your DNS under general settings is not set up.



  • hi,

    thank you for the reply. What i meant with the ping was from my pfsense box. But from my internal network i could not ping and surf.  What i did from my computer inside the internal network was set the gateway 192.168.1.254 (pfsense box) and dns 8.8.8.8.

    thanks,

  • If you can post your LAN firewall rule and your gateway status, that will help.



  • hi,

    i am attaching my gateway status and lan firewall rules.

    thanks,

  • You need to create a rule on the firewall lan tab to allow any protocol from source LAN subnet to destination any for any protocol.



  • hi ,

    Thank you for the input, it solved my problem. I can now surf the net.

    Have a nice day,

    Mon



  • Cool…  I'm glad that works.
