High ping and packet loss in point to point connectivity using pfsense



  • Hi to all!

    I'm new to the world of PFsense.

    Can you guys help me out. I have a big problem with high ping and packet loss with my pfsense.. I have the last version 2.1.3-RELEASE (amd64)

    I have created a point to point connectivity from DC to my office.
    at the dc end my ip is 172.253.250.254 and at office is 172.253.250.77 but the issue is when i ping it from bot the ends i get a very high ping
    samples are mentioned below

    PING 172.253.250.77 (172.253.250.77) from 172.253.250.254: 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 172.253.250.77: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.642 ms

    64 bytes from 172.253.250.77: icmp_seq=10 ttl=64 time=309.481 ms
    64 bytes from 172.253.250.77: icmp_seq=11 ttl=64 time=93.928 ms

    I have not done anything except assigning ip to both the end and bridging the adapter at the DC end (Bridging WAN and Dedicated interface)

    What can be the problem?
    Please help me =)
    if you need some information, ask me, regards.



  • 2.1.5 is the newest version, not 2.1.3.

    Can you create a basic graph of your network, and what technology you are using for your links? They hardware your PFSense is running on could also be useful.
