pfSense on Esxi - wan network doesn't work
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:24:52 pm »
Hi guys,

It's my first time I write in thos forum.
I have a dedicated server in Online.net datacenter. I installed vmware Esxi 6.5_U1. I bought a failover ip, configured a pfsense vm, assigned virtual Mac address to the wan network card (default VM Network port group and physical uplink). After that I configured another virtual switch and another port group for LAN network.

I installed pfsense configuring wan network im this way:

Ip: <failover ip>
Netmask: 255.255.255.255
Default gw: 62.210.0.1

And I checked the option to use gw in another network segment in System --> Routes

The result is that wan network doesn't work. I can't ping anything, neither my default gw 62.210.0.1

Anyone has experienced and resolved my issue?

Thank You so much for your support.

You have set a 32 bit mask... That sure doesn't seem right..

"Netmask: 255.255.255.255"

Thank You  johnpoz for your answer. But it seems correct:

I have another dedicated server in Online Datacenter and my network settings are the same.

But in this case the ppp connection should be configured for the interface. You did not say anything about it. Have you configured ppp[oe]?
