No connection to oustide of LAN



  • Hi All,

    I just did a fresh install of 2.2.6. I am a newbie to pfsense and currently
    is using Linux iptables as my firewall. The documentation said that by default
    "All outgoing connections from LAN are allowed" But in my case I can not
    ping a public ip address from inside the LAN. Pinging from the firewall itself
    does not work either. I can not even ping the WAN default gateway from within
    the firewall. As a test I connected a laptop using the same network configuration
    I am using on pfsense (IP address, default gateway, DNS) and I have not problem
    accessing the internet. I have not set any firewall rules yet.

    Here is my routing table:
    Internet:
    Destination        Gateway            Flags      Netif Expire
    default            66.11.95.126      UGS        re0
    66.11.95.0/25      link#1            U          re0
    66.11.95.2        link#1            UHS        lo0
    127.0.0.1          link#7            UH          lo0
    192.168.2.0/24    link#2            U          re1
    192.168.2.7        link#2            UHS        lo0

    Thanks in Advance

  • Are you sure you've got your WAN netmask right? Subnetting /25 is a huge range of addresses.



  • @ptt:

    Take a look at: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Connectivity_Troubleshooting

    Thanks for replying. I was doing some research before I posted here so I have
    came across that troubleshooting guide.

    Thank you



  • Yeah that is right. We have half a class C from our provider.

  • Thank you for all that replied. It was the NIC that is the culprit.
    I did not at first suspect it because pfsense was able to detect it.
