"Address already in use" and lan port locks up
« on: September 27, 2011, 02:47:23 pm »
Periodically, our pfSense router will completely stop responding on the LAN side. Unplugging and replugging the LAN cable fixes the issue every time.

Whenever this happens (as much as several times a day), I see the following (usually several times) in the system log at the time of the issue:

Code: [Select]
inetd[22782]: 19000/udp: bind: Address already in use

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

i don't know what it is, but iana says that tcp/udp 19000 is iGrid server port. Does it ring any bells?

Actually, it just happened again without that error.

Any idea why this should happen and just unplugging and replugging the LAN cable would fix it?

That is from NAT reflection. It's trying to bind the reflection daemon to a high port in order to bounce connections back.

That message is likely not related to what you are seeing - something else must be happening before that to trigger a reload of the LAN interface. Perhaps it's losing its link (or it believes it is).

Sounds like it could be a flaky cable/NIC/switch port.
