Gateway offline issue



  • Hi all,
    I'm on 2.2 64 bit full image.
    I use PPPoE for the wan interface.The problem is that on the Gateway status it shows : Offline!
    WAN_PPPOE 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.1 0ms 100%
    Offline
    Last check:

    It this normal behaviour?
    Internet works fine.

    thanks



  • what is the monitor ip, configured for that WAN ?  (system–>routing-->edit the gateway-
    is that monitor ip pingable? if not --> pick a different monitor ip.

    it could also be an issue with "apinger" service ... if it isn't running for some reason, you should try to start it.
    If it doesn't want to start ==> post the errors shown in the logs



  • Hi
    Thanks for the reply.
    the monitor ip is 10.0.0.1..same address after apinger restart.
    LOGS:
    Feb 5 14:12:39 apinger: Starting Alarm Pinger, apinger(30244)
    Feb 5 14:12:49 apinger: ALARM: WAN_PPPOE(10.0.0.1) *** down ***

    @nikkon:

    the monitor ip is 10.0.0.1..same address after apinger restart.

    That does NOT answer the question. This should be an ISP gateway (or something manually configured on the Internet side of things.) What's 10.0.0.1 and how did it get there?



  • That's a good question….!!! when WAN interface got connected through pppoe i got this which seems correct.Just tested on my old ddwrt.

    Some ISPs seem to have started handing out gateways like that, in private IP space, apparently in an effort to conserve addresses. Do you still have connectivity?
    Change the monitor IP for the WAN interface to something pingable like, for example, 8.8.8.8. in System > Routing, Gateways tab, edit gateway.

  • yes i have link and works fine.
    just did that…seems ok now...@least i can see when is really down

    this does mean that is probably impossible to use  e.g. 10.0.0.1/24 on any LAN/OPT/routed subnets connected directly with pfsense ?
    i would ask for a discount if that was the case.

    Interesting question. Does it appear in the routing table?

    it does appear !!!

    Almost certainly not then! Though because it's a pppoe connection it's probably /32 so you could use other IPs from the subnet. I wouldn't though.  ;)
