2 Wans on pfSense 2.2

  • I think I found a bug on pfSense 2.2. I will explain all steps made both on pfSense 2.2 and 2.1.4:

    My Environment:

    • Windows 2012 R2 Standard
    • i3-3250, 8 Gb RAM
    • VirtualBox 4.3.18, reserved 512 Mb RAM and 20 Gb HDD.
    • 3 NICs: 1 LAN ( & 2 WANs (,, all in bridge mode and promiscous enabled, Intel PRO 1000/T Server.

    Steps (the same on both versions)

    • Clean Install, default options
    • Set WAN -> em0, LAN -> em1.
    • Set IP, GW on WAN.
    • Set IP, no GW, no DHCP server.
    • Ping ok for any internet address.
    • On pfSense Web Manager, I enabled OPT1 and set IP, GW
    • On System, Routing, set OPT1_GW as default
    • Ping and internet traffic ok on 2.1.4 version, no ping and no Internet Traffic on 2.2.

    That's all. I believe it's a bug.

  • Netgate Administrator

    Can you ping the OPT1 gateway,
    What is the actual error produced when you try to ping from the OPT1 WAN?

    Is that your own IP address, If not why are you using it?

    Anything in the logs?
