2.1 Release change to routing or firewall logs perhaps?

  • 2.1-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Wed Sep 11 18:17:37 EDT 2013
    FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p11

    I've noticed when I access the firewall using its lan ip ( from another lan ip (, in the firewall log it shows the workstation lan ip as the source, but heres what seems odd, the firewall ip is showing in the log as the isp assigned wan ip address and not the lan ip address (

    I dont think this is correct IIRC from previous versions of pfsense hence this post to solicit some other opinions, before I do some more investigating.


  • I am not seeing that problem on any 3 of mine. Course, they all started at 2.1 machines. (Beta then each RC).

  • I upgraded from 2.01 to a recent RC as I needed to add additional nics which werent supported by the earlier bsd out the box.

    Ok, I'll do some more investigating, see if I have messed up something, thanks!

  • When I VPN in, the firewall logs show the LAN interface ip address for pfsense which I would expect but still havent tracked down why the lan interface ip address shows as the wan interface ip address when accessing pfsense from a lan.

    Any suggestions of what I could look for as I'm just using the standard DNS forwarder built into pfsense with snort and openvpn and 4 nics:
    Wan - net access
    Lan - where I hang out.
    Homenet - seperate network for others in the house share to protect me from their infected computers.
    Servers - public ip address gateway going to a couple of raspberrypi lamps each with a public fixed ip.
