CP and DNS
We are working with a system called Corinex in combination with PFsense.
Everything worked great and my clients were a always redirected to the login page of the CP.
At this moment CP is not working anymore, as I did some changes which I can't remember :-[
All my clients with Corinex hardware are now allowed on the network and have full internet speeds and I'm wondering where I messed up
I have a slight clue that the trouble started when I changed the DNS server.
Can someone tell me if the entered DNS server in General Setup does matter if you use the CP?
Should I use the gateway address instead of for example 22.214.171.124?
Thanks for your help in advance
Your clients should use pfsense as dns.
Use ipfw -x "zone" list to see why your clients can access the internet with the CP on.
The strange thing is that all the clients CAN access the internet when CP is on, but they are not presented the log-in screen first.
Post a detailed config of your network.
Ok what info would you need?
DNS is now configured as 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 which are default Ziggo DNS.
Can I change them into 172.16.0.1 as that is the IP of my PFsense?
Furthermore there is some port forwarding and NAT configured, would you need all this info to?
Just post a detailed config of your LAN. It isnt that hard.
I see you haven't noticed the amount of Noobieness I carry with me but oke I assume you mean the following:
Lan IP Router: 172.16.0.1
DHCP is enabled
DHCP Range 172.16.1.1 - 172.16.4.254
DNS Forwarder is enabled
Is that detailed enough?
Anyway, thanks in advance for your help.

Your CP is activated on the LAN interface ?
How do you client connect ? a big switch between this LAN interface and clients ? An AP ? And if it is an AP, has the DHCP been shut down in the AP ? And the router mode has been disabled ?
When client get an IP, is it in the right network segment ( between 172.16.1.1 and 172.16.4.254 ) ? Another IP ? pfSEnse show that he gave that IP (see on Status => DHCP server page )
Also, are the DNS servers whitelisted on CP?
