Upgrade issue from 2.1-RC1 to 2.1-RELEASE
I just upgraded from 2.1-RC1 (Sept 4 IIRC) to 2.1-RELEASE (Alix system).
The gateway came back and is routing traffic fine, but the package system appears to be broken.
Previously, I had pfBlocker installed, now it shows no packages installed.
When I try to go to the Available Packages tab on packages page, it fails with the following error:
Unable to communicate with www.pfsense.com. Please verify DNS and interface configuration, and that pfSense has functional Internet connectivity.
and I see this in the logs
php: /pkg_mgr.php: XML_RPC_Client: Connection to RPC server www.pfsense.com:80 failed. Operation timed out 103
Yet I can connect to www.pfsense.com just fine.
Also, the old package remnants are there e.g. I see this in the logs too:
php: rc.filter_configure_sync: The command '/usr/bin/fetch -T 5 -q -o '/var/db/aliastables/pfBlockerTopSpammers.txt.tmp' 'https://127.0.0.1:443/pfblocker.php?pfb=pfBlockerTopSpammers'' returned exit code '1', the output was 'fetch: https://127.0.0.1:443/pfblocker.php?pfb=pfBlockerTopSpammers: Not Found'
Any thoughts on how to clean this all up?
update, I think something went slightly awry with my ipv6 setup. Logging into a shell on the gateway and trying to
[2.1-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root(2): telnet www.pfsense.com 80
So it's trying to use the ipv6 address and when I look at the gateway status, it shows my WAN_6TO4 gateway as down.
I'll poke a bit here.
So, delete 6to4 settings, reboot and I can now get to the package manager (the timeout is way too short - when I left
the telnet test going, it eventually gave up and tried the ipv4 address, but the packages PHP code times out long before
Hmmm, is www.pfsense.com's ipv6 address down?
I re-enabled ipv6 on WAN and LAN.
I can get to other sites via ipv6 e.g.
[2.1-RELEASE][email@example.com]/root(6): telnet ipv6.test-ipv6.com 80
Connected to ipv6.test-ipv6.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
But when I try to get to www.pfsense.com as an ipv6 address, it fails:
[2.1-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root(5): telnet www.pfsense.com 80
telnet: connect to address 2610:160:11:3::26: Operation timed out
Connected to www.pfsense.org.
The other oddity with 6to4 is that the apinger gateway monitor thinks it's down:
| Name | Gateway | Monitor | RTT | Loss | Status | Description |
| WAN_6TO4 | 2002:c058:6301:: | 2002:c058:6301:: | 0ms | 100% | Offline
