Errors on Fresh pfSense Install



  • Hello! Im new here and new with pfSense and on a fresh install of it im getting these errors on boot and continually when I adjust settings in the web configurator. If anyone could help I would be very thankful!

    Version 2.2.2-Release

    05-17-15 08:54:44 [ There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:17: cannot define table bogons: Invalid argument - The line in question reads [17]: table persist file /etc/bogons]

    "A table is used to hold a group of IPv4 and/or IPv6 addresses. Lookups against a table are very fast and consume less memory and processor time than lists. For this reason, a table is ideal for holding a large group of addresses as the lookup time on a table holding 50,000 addresses is only slightly more than for one holding 50 addresses. Tables can be used in the following ways:

    source and/or destination address in rules.
        translation and redirection addresses nat-to and rdr-to rule options, respectively.
        destination address in route-to, reply-to, and dup-to rule options. "

    So a quick google searching for "cannot define table bogons:" threw up this link.

    Might be worth a go although an error message saying it cant create what is in effect a memory table might suggest not enough ram perhaps or something being loaded out of order perhaps? Do you see the same problem in a different version of pfsense?

    Seems to be a similar problem, http://www.reddit.com/r/PFSENSE/related/30r784/cannot_define_table_bogons_error_frustrating_me/.compact

    Might also be relevant
