Can't ping/access pfSense server - problem



  • Hello.

    First, I don't know where to make this new topic, I hope that is right one section.

    I'm trying to make one lab with VirtualBox. I followed this tutorial : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guU9DNK9fHk&list=PLWAHiM_D-qJ6EoN3vdaY_5jXpvvVmjMdE&noredirect=1

    Installation and configuration went OK without problem but I can't ping or access WAN and LAN both.
    I can ping host system from pfSense but can't ping pfSense from host (or any other PC).

    pfSense version : 2.0.1 (tried with latest 2.1 but still same)
    2 VBox Network Adapters :
    Bridged (Intel PRO/1000 M Desktop type) - em0 for WAN
    Internal (Intel PRO/1000 M Desktop type) - em1 for LAN

    em0 WAN configured to use 192.168.1.8 (got it from main router DHCP) and
    changed LAN (from default 192.168.1.1, because it is main router gateway!) to 10.1.10.8.

    I tried to access without these settings (with default one) and with this settings but I can't access and can't ping it from cmd.
    Firewall on host is disabled.

    What I can do to fix my problems?

    Thanks in advance.

    Where are you trying to access it from?
    By default you will only be able to connect via the LAN interface so what is em1 connected to? Which NIC is the host system using as a gateway?

    Thank you very much for answer. It helped me.
    I was trying to access from WAN (my host PC, lan is internal network for VMs), but from VM with LAN address it works!
