Unable to ping Wan
I'm using qemu kvm and i've created new vm for pfsense. I'm planning to use it as a router.
Below are my configuration.
Gateway : 172.16.1.1
Physical Host: 172.16.1.10 on eth0
Set bridge mode - eth1 and configure as WAN with DHCP (172.16.1.234/24)
Set bridge mode - eth2 and configure as LAN with IP 10.16.44.1/24
Ok now the issue is.
- From vm (pfsense router) im able to ping gateway(172.16.1.1) and physical host (172.16.1.10) but i cannot ping WAN IP 172.16.1.234 from physical host.

- you have to add a rule to WAN to allow it to respond to pings
- the Block Private Networks rule on WAN will likely stop all inbound traffic from your real LAN
