    Is your WAN interface set to block RFC1918 space?

    You know that the WAN interface is not using a public facing IP, right?

    How do you get public IP, I mean how do you connect internet? Modem, other Router?

    This wouldn't matter.  It only affects unsolicited inbound traffic.

    OP-  What do you have for-

    1. outbound firewall rules?

    2. outbound NAT

    Try and set your WAN as dhcp.



  • Dear all,

    i am going to attache the interface status it will clear more to you to help me.
    on LAN devices are getting ip from pf-sense but unable to use internet




  • That interface status looks good.
    What firewall rules are on LAN?
    Can a LAN device ping to pfSense LAN IP?
    What outbound NAT is selected? (Firewall->NAT, Outbound, should be using automatic outbound NAT.



  • 1st thing I would look at …..

    Does the 192.168.1.1 device have a route back to the 192.168.2.0 network??


  • Netgate Administrator

    It shouldn't need a route because pfSense is NATing between them.

    Seems very likely that you have no upstream connection for some reason. On the pfSense dashboard in the webgui does it show 'you are on the latest version' or 'unable to check for updates' ?
