No internet connection but I can ping outside???
I have a new install of pfSense on a ESXI5.1 host. ESXI host has two nic's and I followed the installation example here:
Here are some details:
LAN: Static 192.168.1.0/24 with DHCP pool of .100-.250
WAN: Static 188.8.131.52/29
DSL Modem: 184.108.40.206/29
From a inside host I can ping 192.168.1.1, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124,126.96.36.199
However if I try to go to a external website (www.google.com) it fails.
I am new to pfSense so not sure if I am missing something in the config. . .
If you can ping only local machines pfSense probably has no default route. The WAN interface and DSL modem have public IPs but they are still local to a pfSense interface so it will have a route to them.
Have you set a gateway on WAN?
If you go to System: Routing: Gateways: Is the WAN gateway set as default?
Edit: Just noticed you can ping 188.8.131.52 so forget that! ::)
It's probably a DNS problem if you can ping IPs but not URLs. Do you have those Google DNS servers set in System: General:?
When you try to ping google.com what is the actual error message? Can you ping from the pfSense VM?
