I accidentally removed some of the rules created by pfsense for an IPSEC VPN

  • Hi All,

    I was trying to clean up extraneous rules in my firewall rule base, and I did something bone headed and removed some of the IPSEC VPN rules.  I did not realize that until a couple months after I change a number of other things so going back to restore a previous rule base is not practical.  Can someone provide me a list of the rules needed for IPSEC so I can rebuild.  I tried disabling and re-enabling IPSEC and that does not restore the firewall rules.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    IPsec has its own WAN rules by default internally that cannot be deleted.

    Rules for tunneled IPsec traffic on the IPsec tab are entirely up to you - There are none there by default. You can add a rule to pass all protocols from any/to any on the IPsec tab if you like, or be more specific.

  • Also you should be able to restore changes from the backup/Restore???
