• Silly question but what rules do I need to configure to allow two devices on the same subnet and physical network communicate with one another and ping for that matter?  I have added the firewall rules however it does not work.

    Any advice as to what I could be doing wrong or missing?

    clients on the same segment would not even talk to pfsense, pfsense is your gateway OFF the segment.  If your clients can both talk to internet through pfsense, and ping pfsense gateway IP 192.168.0.? then the issue is between the clients - most likely a host firewall.

    If clients are wireless, then look to client isolation setting in your wireless AP, etc.

    You don't need a firewall rule. That traffic doesn't go through the firewall.
    But if that interface is wireless then you need to enable communication between wireless clients. If it's a wifi NIC in the pfSense box that setting is called 'Allow intra-BSS communication' and it's on the interface setup page. If you have a wifi access point connected then it will probably also have a similar setting.

    Edit: Typed too slow!  ::)
