Unable to ping clients from pfsense but assigning dhcp
I have been trying to add a new interface to our existing pfsense setup but I am unable to ping clients from this interface via pfsense however it is assigning a dhcp address to clients
I setup a laptop attached to the same switch as WLAN is plugged into and it was assigned a 172.16.1.10 dhcp address and I can ping the pfsense box on 172.16.1.1 and 172.16.1.2 however I am unable to ping the laptop on 172.16.1.10 from pfsense WLAN interface. I can ping clients on 192.168.2.x range from WLAN and WLAN_VIP
1 server 2012 with dhcp
WAN int1 x.x.x.x going to pfsense
LAN int2 192.168.2.2 going from pfsense to core switch
WLAN int3 172.16.1.2 going from pfsense seperate switch
DHCP Relay setup on both LAN interfaces and both are assigning DHCP addresses as expected
WAN int1 rules
- RFC 1918 networks * * * * * Block private networks
- Reserved/not assigned by IANA * * * * * * Block bogon networks
LAN int2 rules
IPv4 * * 192.168.0.0/16 * WAN
WLAN int3 rules
IPv4 * * * * * * none
why do you have gateway setup on lan?
I would look to software firewall rule on laptop if you can not ping it, but it can ping pfsense .
nailed it..only had firewall blocking public networks so our internal 192.2 was working fine..doh!
