Games don't work anymore!
We recently installed pfSense firewall/routers, now none of my games work (BF2, america's army, hollywoodpoker.com).
My trading software isn't working either.
I tried the static port thing but it didn't help.
Can someone please help. Thank you.
Have you enabled UPnP in pfSense under the Services menu?
For anyone looking at this in the future:
Looks like I figured it out (after 3 hours last night, and 4 hours tonight using the backup xml config files).
We had the MAC address spoof/cloning turned on. Looks like that isn't working properly since when I turned it off, everything works like a charm (no static ports needed).
I'm fairly sure that MAC address cloning was not a problem with any of my previous routers, so maybe this is a pfSense bug.
How I trouble shot this:
After trying the suggestions that were supposed to work (ie: static ports), I gave up and nuked the router and reset it to factory. I checked this worked. It did. I then downloaded the backup config xml file and compared it to my config that had problems.
Slowly I tried adding things from my bad config to the simple config until I got a problem. Eventually I found the change that caused problems was the MAC Address cloning/spoofing.
