2.2 and 2.2.1 - NAT port forward Rules stuck and not updating or deleting



  • I cannot change set portforward rules, nor delete them, nor add them.

    The change in the list, the go away when deleted and shows up when added, but they do not actually update in the firewall.

    I see now there is a 2.2.2 fix, but I see nothing about this problem.
    I reinstalled on another box (i7-64b) but was running on Xeon on 32b before , and it comes up with the same issue.

    Any ideas?

    Running multiLan to multiWan.

    EDIT:

    I just realised it's more than that - any other rules does not apply either. Something is broken in pfSense…



  • Do you see a filter reload logged in the system log? Check /tmp/rules.debug, do you see the updated rules there? What happens if you run 'pfctl -f /tmp/rules.debug'?

    The usual cause of the described symptoms is something (almost always pfblocker) is making your ruleset fail to load or reload.

    Sure enough, it spit out an error of an alias url file containing rubbish on one line. This was in the locally kept version, I had already spotted the rubbish in the original source file earlier on, but as it never got as far as downloading a new copy, it never replaced the file held in the /var/db/something . Edited the local copy and it loaded normally after that.

    I will see if it also saves and executes changes in the firewall, but I am sure it will, as this error block all further loading.

    Thanks.
