What does this block mean?

  • Hi all,

    Trying to investigate my slow speeds and load balance issues, I discovered this one in my logs. What happening to WAN2? Looks a little fishy to me and just wondering what this could be?

    Why are you blocking your lan from using ntp?  if you don't want them going to the internet for time, then you should point them to pfsense or another ntp inside your network.

    Not the way I would suggest you do it..  Either allow traffic to where its going, fix it from going where you don't want it to go or live with the block..  Redirecting traffic to elsewhere is not a proper fix… If you wanted to use say googledns for your dns, and your network provider hijacked the traffic and sent it to opendns how would you feel?

    Normally the lan side of a network with someone that runs pfsense has some control over input into what the lan devices are configured for - I would configure them with the correct ntp you want them to use vs redirecting where you clearly don't want them going because your blocking it.

    edit:  Hey AspiringNSATroglodyte if your going to send me a PM, you might want to allow me to answer..  Says you have PMs blocked.

    Allow it or block it - fine, your suggestion of hijack is not the way I would suggest it be done..
