Pfsense Blocks internet.



  • Hello my Bloved Pfsense user,

    I am so glad that i come across Pfsense, lately we found that someone ware messing with our heads by some hackers, bank pin codes ware changed, i dont know if they have my personal information.
    i freaked out and  installed pfsense on a pc with 2 pcs gigabite network cards.
    Installation went fine and everything was good, to be more honest it was awesome.
    then later on i installed the package Snort and PfblockiNG, Havap antivirus.
    I blocked all inbound connection in the Pfblocking to shut out all the lovely credit card thives.
    In havap i couldent do much, and it could NOT be started for some reason, after that i could not browse to google or any other sites.
    P/S is there any XML config file that is all set and done for upload on my PC, i really dont understand much of those awsome setting, which i think personaly that more options gives more gives opportunity for more secure home network.

    anyone knows where i have faild and why it blocked me computers from internet?

    Sure OK <rolleyes>"anyone knows where i have faild and why it blocked me computers from internet?"

    Sure with all the details given its a obvious – oh wait, there was not one piece of information that is of any sort of help at all..  Its like you went to the automotive mech and told them your cars broke, and you told them it was red as the only piece of info..</rolleyes>

    Jediah, please see the following link:

    also please ensure you monitor the Snort Alerts tab… Its not turn it on and forget about it... Snort needs to be tuned to your environment... Maybe set it to non-blocking mode at first, till you tune the rules... See also the Packages: IDS Forum for more help...

    Hello my Bloved Pfsense user,

    May I also suggest you not begin your posts like this. It makes you sound like a 419 scammer.

    Unless, of course, you're a 419 scammer.
