Strange routing problem



  • Hello.
    We have 2 pfsense firewalls running in two houses. Each of the houses has their own WAN connection, but we have a direct gigabit connection between the houses. Everything has worked perfectly until my firewall rebooted unexpectedly yesterday. After that it stopped working, "one way". Everything works from House A to House B but not the other way. This is a complex issue so it is not easy to explain.
    Please remember that this has worked fine the last 2-3 months.
    NOTE1 Here is a interesting note. If I ping 192.168.2.50 from my network, it replies. If I ping 192.168.3.50 from House B network, I get no replies. But if I ping 2.50 from 3.50, then ping works both ways. Strange or what?
    NOTE2 If I ping from House B to House A. We get no reply. We can see the connection states in the diagnose->states on House B's pfsense, but nothing shows in the Diagose->states on House A's pfsense.

    192.168.3.0/24 is House A network
    192.168.2.0/24 is House B network

    Config:

    HouseA:
    LAN: 192.168.3.1/24
    WAN: DHCP address
    HtoH: 172.16.0.3/24
    Static route: HtoH 192.168.2.0/24 172.16.0.2

    HouseB:

    • 192.168.3.0/24 * LAN net * *
      FW-rules-WAN: Not nessesary to list here

    We now run latest 1.2 RC3 on both servers
