Ping, RDP, file sharing not working.
« on: January 03, 2012, 05:11:12 am »
Hi!

Google isn't my friend today so here goes nothing.

pfSense 1.2.3

MultiWAN/Loadbalancing 5 ports + LAN

I cannot ping hosts, run RDP or fileshare within the LAN.
How to fix this?

Check your rules. ;)
Before your lan rules with balance gateways, you need a rule allowing local traffic without forcing a gateway.

Your firewall rules. How did you configured your balance?

Now this is strange.

I made a faulty rule on port 80 = cannot get anywhere.

Reset the FW, created the pool for the loadbalancer, made a rule for the balancer.
Now RDP, ping and so on works!  ???

Funny, I set a rule for a network webcam. (portforward)
But when typing the WAN ip (or opt1-4) i only get to the pfsense-router.

What does anything on pfsense have to do with traffic between lan devices?  Unless these devices are on different lan segments that route through pfsense, or devices that connect to different interfaces on the pfsense that bridge between them.

Connectivity between devices on the same segment have nothing to do with any rules on pfsense.

Please draw or at least describe how your lan devices are connected to your network.

You need a rule with source = lannet and dest=lannet with default gateway before this balance everything rule

Well, this does not work as I have planned.

pfsense router --> Switch --> 4 switches --> computers

WAN goes down all the time, 30 sec between.

Removing pfsense-router, connecting an old netgear FVS338 works directly.

Grr.

"pfsense router --> Switch --> 4 switches --> computers"

In that setup WHAT does any rule that you could do on pfsense have to do with computers RDPing or pinging each other or even sharing files between each other??

As you have drawn that network, packets would never even touch the pfsense lan interface for traffic between devices connected to any of the switches.  The only time traffic would go to pfsense is if on a different network, ie internet.

Do you have more than 1 lan interface on the pfsense -- are there multiple vlans or lan segments involved that pfsense could in fact firewall traffic between?  is traffic between device on wan side and lan side of your pfsense box??

If not then rules on pfsense would not have anything to do with traffic between devices connected to your switches.
