FIREWALL hung up daily (sporadic)
I have a big problem. We are a new Startup and using pfsense on an ESXi 5.1.0 .
Everything is fine and running stable, But (maybe) if there some (INPUT) traffic the firewall hung up completly.
(Mostly I think if there were some traffic on our owncloud and/or using the NAT-rules for SSH)
- no webconfigurator
- no more NAT access
- everything seems to be down!
Only a complete restart helps to get it working again.
On ESXi Console I can
pfctl -d nd for a short time everything is fine, if the firewall comes up again everything is lost.
ifconfig em0/em1 down/up
didn´t help here.
State Table show NO TCP Connections anymore.
playback enableallowallwan -> works too BUT I don´t like it ;-)
Version 2.0.3-RELEASE (amd64)

Thanks and kind regards
SORRY - I was wrong
Its the same!
SYSTEM -> ADVANCED -> Firewall/Nat
Disable Firewall Disable all packet filtering
What hardware are your running ESXi on and is it patched upto date?
I've put pfsense on a customers dell rack servers with broadcomm quad nics back over Xmas and it runs very well. Using the vswitches and lans and two bridged router/modems one fixed one variable ip which updates to a backup dynadns service.
I think I have the same problem as your only that my is the latest version of pfsense. http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,66646.0.html
I am not sure where the problem is and how to debug this, but it is impossible to use this in a production setup.
