Able to ping pfsense box but unable to access webgui or internet
Things are going crazy. I am able to ping my pfsense box from my pc and vice versa but unable to do webgui or access any internet site. I am able to ping any site from my pc as well as from pfsense box but its not allowing to surf.
Here's my setup detail :
pfsense 2.2.3 64 bit with snort, ipguard, squid, squidguard.
It was working fine but don't know what caused this.
My /var/log/ipguard_lan.log shows
Aug 18 16:40:18 notice xxxx: de:ad:a0:6a:40:e5 169.254.68.237 169.254.68.237
Aug 18 16:40:18 notice xxxx: de:ad:45:42:ae:e2 169:254:161.105 169.254.161.105
These lines keep repeating continously.
In pfTop on console
tcp I 192.168.4.10:1224 192.168.4.1:443 4:4 1274
Similar message keep repeating. 192.168.4.10 is my local pc and 192.168.4.1 is my pfsense box These message keep coming even when my pc is not connected to pfsense box.
I can't make out whats going wrong. Is it due to snort ? When I try to access pfsense box from webgui it says Connecting and nothing happens. Similarly when I try to access any internet site it says Connecting… and times out. However I am able to ping all internet sites and pfsense box from my pc.
That is APIPA and not a routable network.. trying to use that IP to get access outside the local network is going to crash and burn..
I would suggest you turn off snort and squid and bet you works then.
How do I turn off squid and snort. I am unable to access pfsense through webgui.
Should I access the shell from pfsense console and give the following command:
killall -HUP squid
killall -HUP snort
