Thanks for the feedback.
When you say " Set the correct subnet",,You lost me.
I simply added the VIP as 'other" and also changed to Proxy-ARP. with no luck
Is this were I need to do a 1:1 Nat for the VIP,to 'bind' it to the WAN ip for example?
Were do I add subnet ? Don't remember seeing that option.
In past firewalls I always "assumed" the VIP's( public allocated by ISP) were bound to the wan address,to put it simply?
I also setup two of the created VIP's to be 'pingable' by adding them the same as you add the wan address in the firewall rules to be ICMP echo capable,for diagnostics. Still no ping responses.
Also, I am not using any sort of CARP stuff so that is not in the picture,FYI.
Could you please give me a
Is there a way I should be able to do a traceroute from sshing into the pfsense box to my VIP address and hit it this way?
Also should I ever be able to see the VIP in the ifconfig command? AKA: ifconfig -a
Strange thing is when I set this up a few days ago, and had what i though was right for port forwards for the mail server I could access the WEBMAIL from NXing to my home PC from work and could in fact see/use the webmail ,,about 30 mins later it had quit. Could also telnet from remote/home pc to VIP address/pfsense port 143.
I didn't change a thing either,. As I said this is my first setup of pfsense,so things seem kinda cryptic to me in lots of things related to the setup.
As long as I have delt with this stuff, I feel like I have never been around this,,:-)
