Adding default route [0.0.0.0] [0.0.0.0] [nexthop] issue


  • Hi everyone

    Can I adding default route by GUI like route add -net -inet 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1.  Because after I rebooting pfsense ,the route is no longer exist.

    I try to adding route by GUI ,but it is just only choice 0.0.0.0/1 192.168.1.1.
    After adding this route , I can ping www.google.com , www.yahoo.com.tw, but when I ping packages.pfsense.org [208.123.78.88], It appears no route to host.

    The command with "route add -net -inet 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1." can let me to get https://packages.pfsense.org.
    How can I  get this function by GUI ..? Thanks every one.


  • Hi,

    Is pfsense providing DHCP in your network?

    You shouldn't have to add routes at all in a typical setup.  Between DHCP and DNS pfsense can provide all the routing you need.

    Please post a diagram of your setup with the your WAN, LAN and addresses, so we can help a little more.


  • Hi
    pfsense1 does not providing DHCP in my network, it is my test machine, and only one interface setting as WAN with 192.168.1.42 /24 , and 192.168.1.1 is another pfsense2 which is really working , the pfsense2 is wroking fine in my network. but pfsense1 does not .

    Thanks your reply and help.


  • Can you post a diagram of your setup?
