Disconnection in game



  • Hi,

    I apologize if I write yet another thread on nat for game on pfsense. I feel a big noob when these things happen!

    I found the extreme lag problems with some type of games, for example Ark Survival Evolved. and the impossibility of playing with other type games "Hurtworld"

    I have a pfsense (2.2.6-RELEASE) on an alix board, the firewall is connected directly to my provider gateway with public ip and without double nat, ecc..

    This is the configuration:

    Firewall Rules:  LAN    -> Default allow LAN to any rule

    I tried to add more rules like these:

    Interface-> WAN |  Source->  192.168.0.2/32  |  Source Port->  *****  |  Destination-> *****  |  Destination port-> *****  |  NAT address-> WAN address  |  NAT port-> *****  |  Static Port-> YES

    and this:

    Interface-> WAN |  Source->  192.168.0.0/24  |  Source Port->  *****  |  Destination-> *****  |  Destination port-> *****  |  NAT address-> WAN address  |  NAT port-> *****  |  Static Port-> YES

    I also tried to add on Port Forwarding:

    IF-> WAN |  Proto-> TCP/UDP  |  Src. addr-> *****  |  Src. ports-> *****  |  Dest. addr-> WAN address  |  Dest. ports-> 1 - 65535  |  NAT IP-> 192.168.0.2  |  NAT Ports->  1 - 65535

    but still having disconnection problems and sometimes I cannot connect

    any idea ?

    Thanks,
    Fabio



  • New here too. Try moving the NAT rules you created up higher. I think these act just like firewall rules and ran from the top down. If the default 192.168.0.0/16 is hit first then its the one that gets used.

    Also, why are use using /18?



  • hello

    already tried to put them at the top :P

    18 is a subnet for a DMZ



  • I'm surprised it let you do this. 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.0.0/18 overlap, a good router should balk at this.

    /18 is a 2/6 split of the third octet, IOW 192.168.0.0/18 is 192.168.0-63.x. You have a really big network there, 16K hosts.

    If you really want a /18 and want to use 192.168 for it while keeping 192.168.0.0/24, then you should make it 192.168.64.0/18.
