PfSense SG-8860 and DHCP on OPT3 and OPT4



  • I have a pfSense SG-8860 running the following:

    2.2.3-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Tue Jun 23 15:10:45 CDT 2015
    FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p13

    From a factory default config so as to confirm, I have observed the following issues of which I would like feedback on.

    A) I can successfully configure the DHCP server for LAN, OPT1, and OPT2. If I attempt the same configuration, taking into account of course the necessary IP differences, on OPT3 and OPT4 I end up with what appears to be the DHCP server listening for requests but never any successful DHCP reservations.

    B) A workstation which has a gigabit NIC connected to OPT3 and/or OPT4 seems to fluctuate between a status of "No Carrier" and "Up" yet on OPT1 and OPT2 seems to have a solid status of "Up".
