Automatic Outbound NAT Not working
I have been on Manual Outbound NAT (AON) for a ling time now. I upgraded from pfSense 2.1 to 2.2 , and now tried to change Outbound NAT to Automatic Outbound NAT. When I do this I see two things happening:
All HTTPS requests fail
No rules appear in the Automatic rules table - the table is empty.
How to I switch to automatic outbound NAT and have the system auto generate these rules and be functional?
For automatic outbound NAT to function you need to make sure that:
1. WAN interfaces have gateways selected on, for example, Interfaces > WAN
2. LAN interfaces DO NOT have gateways selected on, for example, Interfaces > LAN
If the table is empty, then either no interfaces have gateways selected, or all interfaces have gateways selected.
You are 100% correct. The WAN interface did not have a default gateway selected in the WAN interface page. The default GW was there though in the routes table, so I just selected it in the WAN interface page and now automatic outbound NAT properly creates the auto rules. Thank you for your help.
