VPN Client - IPv4 select but interface doesn't support - bug?



  • Hi everyone,

    If I just installed a box and add my config backup it, I get Interface doesn't support IPv4 (referring to WAN interface). This happens when setting up OpenVPN client. The reason for this is that pfSense is not connected to internet yet. This is not good because you can't configure the box offline. Is this a bug?

    Thanks,

    Do you have the WAN set to "none" or DHCP or some other type?

    If you have it set to "none" then the message is correct. If it's set to DHCP that should still allow you to configure it even if DHCP doesn't yet have an IP.

    If you don't want to set DHCP, just put a dummy IP on the interface and switch it before taking it live.

    Thanks for the input.
    It is set to DHCP and using only IPv4. IPv6 is set to None. Could that be causing all these issues? I don't think so because when I allow the router to obtain DHCP on IPv4 then the problem is gone. Please test on your end. This is most likely a bug.
