Egress filtering issue

  • I am trying to implement Egress filtering and I am running into some issues.  I've attached a screenshot of my current LAN interface.  I've setup pass rules for 443, 80 and 53.  Once I disable the default any, any I can get to Google on 443 preform a search such as but I cannot get out through port 80.  Any idea what I am doing wrong?

  • Google automatically redirects HTTP traffic to HTTPS now.
    Can you reach other sites on HTTP like

    …well, bad idea. pfSense uses HTTPS only as well.
    Try for example.

  • Chris,

    Eureka moment.  I cleared my browser cache.  Explained why I could only get to and nothing else.  Now pfsense blocks all 80/443 traffic… so I must be implementing the pass rules incorrectly or have some other configuration setting set incorrectly.

    One thing I notice is your dns rule is tcp and not udp..  UDP is what is used for normal queries, tcp can be used large queries, zone transfers, etc.. but if your going to want to query dns you need to enable udp as well.

  • Thank you John.  That worked!
