Clients take 'forever' to get internet connectivity



  • I'm running pfsense on a proxmox install.

    99% of it is running great.

    However, when I reboot a vm (havent' checked with real hardware yet) it takes over 5 minutes (sometimes much more) to get network connectivity outside it's lan.

    All my vm's are on 192.168.5.xxx, gateway .5.1 and are containers using a debian 8 templater.

    Immediately on boot I can ping any other .5.xxx address, but nothing on .0.xxx (real machines), or the internet.  Dns does resolve (if ping google.com it gives an IPv4 address, no pings).

    Once connectivity comes up, when I do 'ping google.com' it prefers IPv6 and I get good results.

    vbr0 = eth0
    vbr1 = eth1
    vbr2 = eth2
    vbr5 = virtual only for VM's.

    I track ipv6 with a /56.

    What other info can I give that will help with resolution?



  • No one has any thoughts on this?

    :'(



  • Doesn't sound anything like a "typical" pfSense issue.

    My first instinct would be to ask in the Virtualization forum.
