Can't get anything out from a new install
The drive in my firewall failed, so after installing a replacement, I'd to reinstall the system (2.1.2 at present).
But nothing's getting out with just the default rules.
I thought at first I might have got the ethernet ports swapped around, but not so.
Evidently I made some kind of bad choice when doing the basic config, but I can't find it.
If you've done a new install and you can get to the WebGUI at 192.168.1.1 but nowhere else, then the system is working perfectly ;)
The basic install doesn't allow any outbound traffic. You have to go to Firewall->Rules->LAN and add a rule to allow outbound traffic.
Just a small note, hard drive failures are just one of the many reasons to always keep a backup of your config.xml file :)
It looks to me as though there's a default rule that lets everything get out ("default allow lan to any rule"). What am I missing?
(I did actually dump the ruleset to xml even though it was only about a dozen rules. Unfortunately, a search hasn't turned it up yet.)
Can you post your current rules for WAN and LAN?
We can take a look and perhaps see what's up.
They're just the default rules.
pass * * * LAN Address 80 * * Anti-Lockout Rule
IPv4 * LAN net * * * * none Default allow LAN to any rule
IPv6 * LAN net * * * * none Default allow LAN IPv6 to any rule
What happens if you try (assuming you have a PC command prompt):
What responses do you get?
Can you login to the WebGUI?
I did finally get it working, thanks.
More for everyone's general knowledge, do you know what the problem was in the end?
