Why is 'Default deny rule IPv4' blocking outbound 80/443?



  • I am trying to understand why pfSense is blocking outbound requests to port 80 and port 443. It occurs most commonly with devices, such as Android, Roku and even DirecTV. Perhaps not in this sample, but usually most of the destination IP addresses belong to 1e100.net (Google's catch-all domain for various services), but one thing that is odd is when I use the Android Roku app to connect to a local Roku device, the Roku sends requests out to a public IP address and pfSense blocks those requests, preventing me from connecting my Android Roku app to my Roku device.

    Here is a sample of the logs I am getting, all with

    @3 block drop in log inet all label "Default deny rule IPv4"

    as the rule that triggered these actions:

    BTW, the initially named 'LAN' was renamed to LAN1 and the LAN2 (reconfigured/renamed OPT1) blocking rule is basically a copy and paste of the LAN rule created during install.

    Edited to add: Not all port 80/443 requests are being blocked, just some of them.





  • PFSense is enforcing proper TCP. For whatever reason, the state for that TCP session does not exist. You can't send ACK packets for a session that does not exist, so PFSense blocks them.

    It was mentioned that asymmetrical routing is a common reason. This would agree with my wife's cellphone doing this a lot. I assume it's primarily when her cell phone switches between WIFI and 4G. I haven't wiresharked it, but that's because it doesn't happen often, but when it does, it happens in bursts.
