opt2 subnet being blocked
« on: April 15, 2008, 10:37:06 am »
I have kind of a unique situation one of my isps is a wireless that keeps everyone on the same subnet. everything works great on my setup, dual wan over two isps one being the wireless, but I do have one thing that I'm trying to get around but I don't understand why it's happening

A quick overview of my network, and the network of two of my other locations the first is a dual wan setup with failover.

lan---                --wan(
          |pfsense|                                   location 1
wlan--               --opt1(

lan--    |pfsense|--wan( location 2

lan--    |pfsense|--wan( location 3

locations 2 and 3 are on the same subnet as the opt1 interface at location 1
the problem is that traffic if going in and out fine to everywhere but the 2 and 3 location, the mail gets forwarded properly unless it's sent to location 1 from 2 or 3 and it's the same with all ports that I've forwarded, I've added rules to location 1 on all the interfaces to allow any traffic from that subnet but it is still blocking the traffic, has anyone seen this or know a work around?

also just as a side note, the traffic from the opt1 subnet is blocked on both interfases at location 1.

Try to traceroute back and forth and check if the routes are different. This will break statefulness. Maybe you are missing a route somewhere or your multiwan rules are sending out packets to the wrong gateway.
