[Mostly Solved] Stumped on simple set up not working



  • Running pfsense on proxmox 4.

    I have Wan/Lan/Opt1

    Anything on my Lan can get to the internet (but no ipv6, although it worked at one point).  Nothing on Opt1 (all my vm's) can get to internet, or Lan.

    My firewall rules are dead simple, as shown in the pictures.  I was transferring data from a device on Lan to one on Opt1, so it DID work.  Dunno what I broke.

    I did install squidgard, squid3, snort, and sarg.  But I've now removed them all.  Still not working.

    EDIT:
    Ok, so now everything can get to the internet, and across subnets to each other.

    My only issues now are VM's taking forever to get internet access: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=103853.msg579142#msg579142 and torrents are incredibly slow.

    Post the screenshot of Status - Interfaces.



  • Status screens as req:

    Nothing jumps out at me, but I'm kinda fried right now. Learning lots of stuff in the last few hours.

    EDIT: I added the Lan gateway as an upstream gateway to Opt1. Seemed to help for a min, then its gone.

    EDIT 2:  So, it seems like if I do anything that causes opt1 to reload, I will get connectivity from opt1 to lan for a minute or so, then it dies.






  • Lan gateway? Upstream?

    90% of the time there should only be gateways on wan connections.

    Start by removing all gateways except the ones on wan.



  • Yea.  I did it b/c, well, it wasn't working anyway.

    However, I've now removed it, and the link seems to be staying up.  Weird . . .

    But I can't get any ipv6 connectivity.



  • @heper:

    100% of the time actually (if referencing a gateway that exists under Interfaces>LAN/OPTx). Only specify a gateway on the interface's config if it's an Internet connection.

    @tymanthius:

    But I can't get any ipv6 connectivity.

    No telling from that. IPs configured on the interfaces and hosts? Routing configured from the upstream to get the subnet to you? Any local v6 connectivity?



  • I think it may just be a flaky modem.  I ordered a repl, but that arrived DOA.  Waiting on RMA now.  And tonight the mdm decided it wanted to reboot every 5 minutes for about 2 hours.

    Now I'm getting high pkt loss on ipv6 only, but all my vm's have ipv6 connectivity, at least sometimes.  My windows machine, on the Lan, doesn't, but I can live with that for now.

    I'll come back to this after the mdm is replaced.

    You know, I actually wanted the screenshots to check that you did NOT set that up. Completely broken idea. And yeah, sounds like dead HW to me.
