1 WAN, 2 LAN. cannot get get DHCP working since update to 2.3
I had a setup that seems to stop working after the update to 2.3 despite backing up an restoring settings etc. So I decided to wipe my VM and start again.
so I have one WAN. this is working (as I installed the squid package), then I have LAN1 and LAN2. lan1 seems ok, this is a no DHCP proxy setup. LAN2 is where the issue lies.
as a test I have plugged LAN2 right into a wireless AP on it's own. connected a couple of wireless devices and setup DHCP in PF sense. put an allow all rule in but no matter what I do I cannot seem to get DHCP running. the devices never get addresses. I am totally bewildered as to what I am missing. no matter what NIC or cable I use I get no traffic across my allow any rule. I am not sure if I am being thick and missing something obvious?
much testing on this and still un certain.
if I do not use a 2nd network I can DHCP on the first network. the moment I add a 2nd network I am unable to supply DHCP on that 2nd network. I am so confused by this.
setup is as follows.
WAN 192.168.1.254/24 gateway of 192.168.1.250
LAN 172.20.100.160/24 corporate network has it's own transparent proxy already (in another country), so enter details for this proxy to access content usually block do to location
LAN2 18.104.22.168/24 my guest network. used to RUN DHCP plus transparent proxy. does not need access to LAN only WAN
States Protocol Source Port Destination Port Gateway Queue Schedule Description Actions
IPv4 * LAN2 net * * * * none Default allow LAN2 to any rule
This seems to show 0 traffic. When joined to this wifi on my iphone I get no address. if i press renew lease I can see traffic on the interface hardware ware but the PFsense is basically ignoring it.
I am at a loss as to why this setup worked before 2.3 and now does not. hence me rebuilding from scratch.
is there anywhere else I should be looking?
I have spent atleast 10 hours on this and now I give up.
I managed to solve this issue by destroying my VM and rebuilding it a 3rd time and all is well. matter is closed.
