    The local network is 192.168.10.0/24
    The pfSense address is 192.168.10.200

    I'm not able to ping pfSense or any other host on the local network.
    I'm not able to ping 192.168.20.6 form pfSense but I am able to ping it from the host inside local network.

    The firewall rules were autocreated by the wizard.
    The listing in cmd - route print shows the 192.168.20.0 network.

    The hosts on the local network have 192.168.10.200 as their default gateway

    What else should I check?
    How come I can connect to pf but cannot ping it?



  • It's working.
    I've spent many hours on that and what helped was a pfSense reboot :)

    I also followed this tutorial:
