Some sites hang on loading
My setup is EXSi Hypervisor 6.0 on a Dell Poweredge R410. VM settings:
Guest OS FreeBSD (64-bit)
Compatibility ESXi 5.0 and later (VM version 8)
VMware Tools Yes
Memory 4 GB
2 NICs presented to the VM are VMXNET 3
Generally happy with it, but sometimes I get a page refusing to load. This happens mostly with ebay, going to another page or search results. The initial page load is fine, but when I try to view an item or click on page two of my search results, it just hangs. Other we traffic and pages load fine while this happens. If I forget about it, and come back in an hour or two, and click the same link again, it loads immediately.
Any advise would be appreciated,
Are you running a proxy server like squid? The base firewall operates at the packet level and knows not of websites per se. It should be all or nothing, eg. if any HTTP/S sites work then they should all work.
No proxy server / service. I was running a Juniper SRX240 before this and did not have the same problems. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this would be appreciated.
Do you have IPv6 enabled, and if so are you actually using it? What is pfSense using for DNS?
V6 is enabled, but I'm not using it. DNS for the device is 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
Packet capture traffic from the host that's having issues while you're seeing an issue. What's it look like? DNS queries getting answered fine? HTTP/HTTPS connections establishing and failing some point later, or sending SYNs repeatedly with no reply, or?
