Restart IGMP Proxy - HOW?
Can anyone tell me the command from the CLI to restart the IGMP Proxy?
On which version of pfSense?
If you're on 2.1 or later (e.g. 2.1.2), this should work:
pfSsh.php playback svc restart igmpproxy
Thanks a lot for the help.
I am getting the following when I try that command, any ideas?
[2.1.2-RELEASE][email@example.com]/home/james(13): pfSsh.php playback svc restart igmpproxy
Starting the pfSense shell system…............
Attempting to issue restart to igmpproxy service...
PHP Warning: fopen(/tmp/igmpproxy.conf): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /etc/inc/services.inc on line 1273

igmpproxy has been restarted.

Try running the command as the user root. Your personal user account probably doesn't have the necessary permissions.
Yes, you need to run it as root or use the sudo package to run it as your own user
I managed to install the sudo package as I'm accessing remotely and don't have RSA Keys setup for the root user.
The IGMP Proxy was restarted from the command line with:
#sudo pfSsh.php playback svc restart igmpproxy
I then played around with the cron job tool and have managed to schedule a working IGMP Proxy restart at 01:00 every morning with the following command ran as root:
/usr/local/sbin/pfSsh.php playback svc restart igmpproxy
Hopefully now the 2 channels which kept going off after a couple of days (Nickelodian and Disney) will stay working and my wife will be off my case.
Thanks a lot!!
