New to pfsense - couple of issues



  • Hello all! First of all let me start off by stating how excited I am to get involved in the pfsense community.
    Here are the problems I'm facing:
    1. The router can see pfsense within the network, but the ip I'm supposed to use (192.168.111.x) to access the GUI doesn't actually load.
    2. When I get done configuring the settings and proceed to enter 99 in, I am not able to confirm whether the router is actually booting up. It also doesn't appear on the local network again.

    Thank you for taking the time to read!



  • Welcome to the community!

    Unfortunately there is not enough information supplied to even try and help you with this issue.

    In #1 I get the impression there is some kind of other router involved, but you give no information about what it is or how it is connected in relation to the internet or the pfSense box.

    In #2 I get the impression that you are referring to the pfSense as the "router".

    You've managed to confuse me completely so please explain.

    What networking equipment (router, modem and/or switches) is in the network and exactly how is it connected together? If anything complicated, a network diagram is usually very useful to describe a network.

    What ip addresses/netmasks are in use on each interface?

    What (if any) is your DHCP server?

    Yeah this might as well be Lorum Ipsum..  Sorry but what does your router see pfsense mean?  You mean you can ping it?  Which interface of pfsense wan, lan?  Why are you suppose to use 192.168.111 ??

    Where did you get the idea that your suppose to put in 99???  Why can you not confirm router booting up?  And when you say router do you mean pfsense or this other router you seem to have in your network?

    What doesn't appear on your local network??  Appear where - things don't appear on networks..  Do you mean you can ping its IP?  It got a lease from your dhcp server?  Your using some monitoring sort of software that now sees what??

    Love to help but if I gave you

    "But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"

    Could you help me? ;)
