TrafficShapping and NAT on pfSense 2.1

  • So I did a quick search and couldn't come up with anything in regards to this issue I seem to be having.  So I am not sure if it is a bug that I should report or not and thought I would ask here if anyone has the same issue or can direct me to where to look for for proper logging messages for diagnoses of my issue.

    I am working with pfSense 2.1 and have a I350 Intel 4port LAN card installed. A I3 Intel CPU. I currently have one port with three VLANs on it and everything works great. I have one port used for a WAN connection that has an alias IP, so two public IPs for the WAN. I have NAT rules for traffic going out the WAN as normal.

    I then add Traffic Shaping rules via the wizard and all seems to be good, aside from the Squid Proxy traffic not really or seeming to be handled through the Shaper rules.  The issue I have arises when I reboot my pfSense. It all comes up seemingly fine but no Internet access. I do a packet capture and fine that all traffic out the WAN is not being NAT'd. so I see privet IPs leaving the WAN interface.

    If I remove my Traffic Shaping rules it instantly starts working correctly, aside from no traffic shaping.

    Can anyone assist in directing me to where my issue is? or how to correct it? or is it a bug and I should report it?  Would it be in pfSense or in the Squid Proxy?

    Or where should I look for any error messages in regards to this issue.



  • Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
