Timeout on LAN interface
My pfSense setup is working great exept in one situtation.
When I start torrent on my computer couple of seconds lattter LAN interface on pfSense stops functioning. On monitor attacher to pfSense box I see watchdog warning.
I have to reboot pfSense to use it again, but if I start torrent again same thing happens.
What NIC is your LAN interface? What driver is it using?
All three interfaces (WAN 1, WAN 2 & LAN) uses the same NIC bit this only happens on LAN. This is what sysinfo says: Sundance ST201 10/100BaseTX
Ok, so ste0-2 then?
Anything in the logs? Anything is the boot messages? Perhaps this:
kernel: ste0: WARNING: using obsoleted if_watchdog interface
Might only apply to earlier pfSense versions. What version are you running? (Full/Nano/Embedded)
Is this an embedded hardware? More hardware details please.
It could genuinely be a bad cable or failing switch.
For the record, I also have been seeing this.
The PFsense version is 2.1.4
Running as a VMware virtual machine on ESXi 4.1u1
Using VMXNET2 adapters.
4.1 is quite old, an issue perhaps? I don't run ESXi though I can't really comment.
