WebUI takes a long time to load



  • I'm having an issue where the webUI would work fine, but then every so often I would click to go somewhere and it would become non responsive. Even opening a new window takes a while. It's like there are connection hiccups. What could be the cause of that?



  • I had a slow GUI issue once that involved a DNS setting I had changed from default in pfSense, but I don't remember where.  It was a list of interfaces for DNS to bind to, and I changed it from localhost to All or something.



  • I did set it to ALL. But I'm still having issues. Is there any other setting that I need to set in the DNS Forwarder GUI?



  • Are you using Firefox?

  • It was Services - DNS Forwarder - Interfaces.  Leave it set to localhost.



  • I use Chrome. But it seems to be an issue in either browser.

    It was Services - DNS Forwarder - Interfaces.  Leave it set to localhost.

    I've tried that, but it looks like my clients lose access to the DNS when I do that. Is there something I need to set in the DNS Forwarder page? Or any checkboxes that I need to set?



  • All I know is that when I changed the Interface from Localhost to All, the GUI became really unresponsive.  The only things I have set in DNS Forwarder are Enable and Interfaces - Localhost.

    So all other checkmarks are unchecked (you only have one checkbox checked)? I have some checkmarks in other checkboxes, so that might be the issue.



  • Yes.




  • Thanks!

    Thanks a lot of IP addresses  :)



  • Huh, I just noticed that I left those in the image.  Oh well, whatever.  I can count on pfSense to protect me.



  • I followed your advice, but the issue is that once I set the DNS Forwarder to localhost, all clients on the network lose DNS (they can still ping the WAN using IPs). I have the Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) configured in the pfSense settings and the DHCP server dispenses the gateway's IP as the DNS server to the clients. Is there anything that needs to be done?

    I'm using Chrome, but the same thing happens on Firefox as well. Also, I'm using HTTP and not HTTPS.

    Sorry, no idea.  I was just sharing my experience with what happened to me.
