PFsense blocking (lan to wan) sometimes



  • im not sure what is happening im kinda new
    i have setupped my pfsense pc normally
    but sometimes pfsense's firewall blocks lan to lan and lan to wan
    i had like my pc to isp blocked



  • also i have bridged my wan to lan
    im not sure if its right cuz i didnt get internet connection when i didnt have it
    im super noob ;D



  • im super noob ;D

    To networking in general or pfSense in particular?

    If you want someone to help you, please provide real details like your interface settings and firewall rules, etc.  Nobody could possibly guess what's wrong by what you have said so far, other than bridging WAN to LAN is not the solution.

    also i have bridged my wan to lan

    Where did you get the idea to do that. You almost certainly broke your network at best and opened up yout LAN to the internet at worst.

    pfSense (any router, really) has nothing to do with "lan to lan" same-subnet traffic.



  • well if i take the bridge off i lose internet connection dunno why

    Preferably screenshots and not a massive blob of text or a description of what you think you've done.



  • i got to the panel
    so pfsense has these stuff

    Since you are talking about basic functionality you might have better luck getting an answer in the forum for your native language.



  • I'm sorry but I can't help you if you won't post the things we ask for.  Good luck to you though.  I hope you get it working somehow.

    And what are your lan rules???

    Yeah it would block broadcast traffic - it doesn't need to send that anywhere, its already been seen by anyone on that lan segment
    As to blocking a dns query to 8.8.4.4 - would need to see your lan rules.. Most likely you have some rule only allowing tcp..
