Puzzled - Internet access
I am having a very strange issue, which I can't get my head around so I am looking to see if anyone has seen something like this before.
I have no internet access from inside the network, I can't get to google from a browser or ping google from a workstation smd prompt (100% lost packets)
I can, however access the firewall remotely - by loging in through the web gui at my url - furthermore, when accessing the network I can see that all clients are registered with valid ip addresses etc.
Can anyone advise of any diagnostice I can run (remotely as I am 200 miles away) or if they have seen anything like this issue?
I can also ping google from the router diagnostics page…

from pfSense GUI, did you:
- check that WAN is up
- try diag tools and check pfSense can access internet
- look at logs in case packets are dropped or rejected
Diagnosis so far…
I can ping 126.96.36.199 from the default source with no packet loss
I can ping 188.8.131.52 from the WAN source with no packet loss
I can't ping 184.108.40.206 from the LAN source - 100% packet loss.
I believe this indicates an outbound firewall rule issue, which I have set up as:
Automatic Outbound NAT rule generation
WAN 127.0.0.0/8 & 220.127.116.11/24 * * 500 WAN address * Yes
WAN 127.0.0.0/8 & 192.168.4.0/24 * * * WAN address * No
