Hi all, I have some question to ask with regards the setting up of PFsense.

Firstly, may I know the IP we used to key in on the WAN part should obtain from the ISP? (WAN), and is it can be identified from the website ""?

Secondly, how do we identify which IP to be used on the the LAN side? Is it the next empty port on the server port or switch? But after I put in an empty / unused IP, still cant load the login page.

from the scenario above, how can troubleshoot and what are the steps to take?

Hi all, recently i have setup a new PFsense, but unfortunately somewhere in the middle i realized my server's connection failed, and became unreachable. A manual restart is then required in the DC.

When we try to start the server again and study the log, we realized this error.

- pool Temporary failure in name resolution (-3)

and I went online and do some research and found out it could be the DNS is giving some issue. May I know have anyone encountered this issue and how can I clear the changes before I boot the pfsense again to avoid server unreachable error?

Hi all, would like to know more about setting up a Gateway.

Firewalling / New VLAN & Firewall rules but no traffic, how to resolve?
« on: January 08, 2018, 09:34:00 pm »
Dear Experts, i am facing some difficulties. Originally, I have one WAN and LAN and monitoring them using Suricata. But now, we would like to expand the monitoring to more VLANs, and I am trying to add 3 more with firewall rules opened.

Unfortunately, after awhile I still not able to see any traffic flowing through. Is there any configuration I missed out? like entering the IP address we wish to monitor? or firewall rules is blocking or could it be logging is not turn on and configured properly?

I realized the SNORT module is not capturing the correct and useful information. How can I configure it to be able to capture the data?

Is there anything I need to install?

Dear all, recently I have explored this open source PFsense and also together Suricata & Snort. Now I am planning to transfer all these to the real server to server environment. With this, would like to check with you all what do I need in place in order for me to monitor various servers in our server farm.

How do we monitor other servers from one source? an Agent need to be installed? how can i get the agent if needed. Kindly advise and share with me your experience. Thanks

Hi all, need help on guides how to remove all these unwanted alerts from Suricata, meanwhile active those alerts which are more meaningful. Thanks
