Fix for rc.newwanip
I'm using PFsense since more than 10 years and never had big issues except the one I'm describing now.
Last year I bought new hardware for my firewall, Soekris 6501-70. After the installation I was faced to the issue mentioned in "https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=66908.0". After applying the fix "https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/commit/f3a4601c85c4de78caa4f12fefd64067fd83dbe8" everything was working fine until I did an upgrade from 2.1 to 2.1.3. It seems that the manual fix I made, get lost. :-(
That's why I'm asking you, if it's planned to bring this fix in the normal release. And if so, in what version it would be fixed.
from what i can tell from that topic, that patch shouldn't be needed anymore, because that patch was implemented in 2.1.1
What I can say is that those four lines were not in the file rc.newwanip after doing a new install or upgrade. Maybe the fix is done differently, but those changes are not done.
On master branch:
The test was expanded by: https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/commit/629f07c3312bd5bbf9f4e0d39809dfd3a8278006 11 Nov 2013
Then fixed up again by: https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/commit/635c00d36d96ceee00301ae593985410061ec16e 28 Dec 2013
But then the whole piece of code was removed by: https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/commit/83c0dc1d1ea154c0096f6a291f51944d057f5241 12 Apr 2014
and these have also been applied on 2.1 branch.
So for some reason the test has been removed completely from the official code. That is why it is not there in recent releases.
