Upgraded from 2.0.3 to 2.1.1, no connection between LANs

  • Hi,

    I've just updated from 2.0.3 to 2.1.1 and now my different LANs have no visibility between them. Before upgrading I could ping and connect to IPs from different subnets without problems, now I can't. What could have changed for this to happen?


  • You probably have policy-routing rules that are pushing all the traffic out the gateway or gateway group/s.
    In older pfSense versions, the code underneath put rules to pass local traffic before the policy-routing rules.
    Now you need to do it yourself. Add rules at the top of each LAN-style interface like:
    Pass protocol all, source LANnet, destination LAN2net

    Hmm, are you sure about that Phil? It could be that my 2.1.1 boxes are upgrades and I haven't noticed a change in behaviour but I thought the default setting was enabled for the negate rules.
    I have them disabled in Advanced: Firewall/NAT: because I prefer to set rules for everything I want to allow.
