Ping via ssh pfsense site-to-site
how do I make a ping pfSense? happens I closed one ipsec tunnel and between desktops is ok, but when I do a ping via ssh with pfSense pfSense another destination or Destkop nothing happens.
Choose an appropriate source to match your IPsec Phase 2. For example if the local network is your LAN, when pinging from Diagnostics > Ping, choose "LAN" as the source.
To add to Jimp's thought: You may also need to allow ping traffic on your firewall. Under Firewall, Rules, IPSec, you may need a rule that states Allow, IPSec, ICMP (echoreq), Source (Remote network), Destination (LAN Address).
Hope this helps!
