Can not ping Host from Guest pfsense installed in VirtualBOX



  • hi there,

    i have installed Pfsense in virtualBox. 1 Network Adopter is installed with Bridge network setting.
    pfsense can get the ip address from the external network , and can ping all the network outside.
    but from outside any host can not ping the guest pfsense server.

    i am afraid if there is firewall blocking any host to ping the server. but if i install the pfsense in any individual CPU it works fine.

    please help.

  • Have you tryed disabling Windows firewall of your host machine?



  • The default rules on WAN do not allow ICMP packets so you can't ping WAN unless you add a rule.
