By default for security reasons the OPT interfaces don’t have firewall rules allowing traffic. As host of the pfSense open source firewall project, Netgate believes in enhancing network connectivity that maintains both security and privacy.
However, when pinging from the Wan to dlel box using the ip address, and running tcpdump -i bge0, I can see the echo request, but no echo reply from the pfsense box!

Strepsils 3, 4 Unless you set rules to allow traffic, pfSense will block pretty much all inbound traffic on your WAN interface. Only users with topic management privileges can see it. Under what circumstances should the OS provided driver be replaced?
Would appreciate your help, Thanks, Netxttreme. I was reading up on some Dell issues as we’re seeing intermittent poor performance on the VM’s running on these hypervisors VMQ is disabled, before anyone says itand I read something about making sure you swap out the OS installed drivers if the Machine is a Dell and it is using Broadcom NICs.
Hi All, After installing the latest beta version, 2.

I have setup pfsense on a different machine sometime ago, with no such problems, it was working flawlessly, and that was an exercise I have to go through, deciding whether I should go with CISCO ASA 5XXX Series, or buy a good server, and run an Open Source Firewall, in my case, I found that the best one would be pfsense after reading different reviews.

This sort of problem report is too vague for anyone to be able to help without asking further questions. At this moment you can unplug your monitor cable and manage this firewall via a browser or you could select option 8 and explore via a Shell.
We also believe everyone should be able to afford it.
UDP, length I can ping from the pfsense box other boxes on my wan with their ip address. Not a straight answer but some advice: With rare exceptions stuff doesn’t get enabled unless it is specifically enabled.

I may be using them very early in initial setup but they are updated by the server vendor’s drivers pretty much first thing. I found that there is a patch to be applied to the driver, from FreeBSD, but I need to compile against the kernel.
The card is working, but something is wrong with the driver.
