PF restarted, error rule DIOCADDALTQ

  • Hello,

    I am a totally new to pfsense, and I have just finished to setup my personnal firewall using pfsense.

    After a few days I have received 2 mails notifications, each composed of 2 mails :

    First tels me this :

    PF was wedged/busy and has been reset.

    The second tels me this :

    There were error(s) loading the rules: pfctl: DIOCADDALTQ: Device busy - The line in question reads [0]: 

    The empty data after the ':' in second mail may be a clue about the problem.

    What may cause this and how can I solve this ?


    Best regards.

  • I'm getting the same thing after the latest 2.2 release version. Are you running pfblocker? I think it's related to that.
