Test environment: pfSense 1.01 booting off CD with a couple of crossover cables connected to windows PCs running web servers and browsers.
Following the transparent bridge PDF, I go up to the point just before enabling the filtering bridge so it should be running as a full bridge without any filtering.
However It won't pass any packets whatsoever between the machines.
WAN IP: 192.168.1.100 /24
LAN bridged to WAN with LAN IP set to 192.168.1.100 (have tried different options for this without effect)
Test client 1 (win):
Connected to LAN port of firewall and used for pfsense management
Can ping firewall
CANNOT access 192.168.1.202 (ping or http)
Test client 2 (win):
Connected to WAN port of firewall
CANNOT ping firewall
CANNOT access 192.168.1.201 (ping or http)
I havent enabled bridge filtering yet so according to the web interface this should allow all packets across the bridge without interruption.
Any suggestions of things I can try or ways of checking the configuration is correct ?
I don't get where I can be going wrong - its only like 3 changes from default and i've tried it a load of times from a clean install or 'factory defaults'.
Any help much appreciated
