Pfsense allow ping

Configuring ping & gateway monitoring & logging in pfsense

I hope I’ve explained it correctly. On my laptop, I use hyper-v to build a virtual network. A pfsense machine, a Windows server, and a Windows 10 machine are all on the virtual network. 192.168.0.0/27 is my LAN network, and 192.168.1.0/27 is my virtual network. The WAN connection on the Pfsense box is 192.168.0.13, and the LAN is 192.168.1.1. I may ping from my laptop 192.168.0.3 to the Windows 10 VM 192.168.1.3, but not from the Windows 10 VM to my desktop. On my router, I’ve configured a static route for the 192.168.1 network. On the PfSense firewall, I enabled the 192.168.0 network. Why can’t I ping from my desktop to the VM? Please accept my apologies if this is unclear.
However, the WAN port is still regarded as external and is not included in the routing table.
It would take a long time for me to help you get this set up so you can use Pf as a firewall as well when using Hyper-V, and you’d have to keep the VM running if you wanted internet access.
You could be better off connecting your internet to a small PC and running Pf on that, so you can still turn off your PC at night.
If you want to keep playing with your current setup, you’ll need another vNIC and a separate network on the LAN – since Pf is a firewall, the WAN port will never be considered internal, so you’ll need to build inbound firewall rules.
Creating firewall rules on the WAN interface for testing is great, but it’s not a good idea for a live setup unless you know what you’re doing.

Pfsense – how to block ping

In the GUI, I’d like to be able to add more than one IP as a monitoring IP. I’d like the device to use the first IP until it stops responding, then switch to the second and take the interface offline if the second does not respond.
My reasoning is that we have a large number of remote offices around the world, some of which are located in places where service is not always effective (like morocco). Using the Internet Provider’s DNS servers would be perfect, but in the case of Morocco, I had a variety of issues with their DNS servers. It’s not a big deal in regular service, but if flaky connectivity causes the line to go down intermittently and the line is shifted to another, I have issues with our SIP connectivity. (We depend heavily on SIP over the Internet.)
I attempted to use more dependable services such as OpenDNS (did not really work out very well, sometimes high latency, etc.). I tried using root servers, but it gave me a sinking feeling in my stomach; what if they tightened their rules and locked me out one day for pinging too much?

How to block ping through pfsense

Hi there,

Pfsense and rules for iot devices with mdns

In Pfsense 2.0.1, is it possible to ping a WAN virtual IP?

Pfsense setting multiple static wan ip addresses / using

The WAN interface has a ppoe link that periodically switches IP. I have a server running on a list of five static virtual IP addresses. I need to allow ping because I want to use nagios to check if the host is alive. Setting a Wan firewall rule for the PPOE connection’s IP works fine, but I can’t seem to find a way to move this firewall rule to one of the virtual IPs. Nat, unless I’m mistaken, will also not be an option. If you have any thoughts on this? Greetings

This is what we do in my office. Our public IPs are routed via 1-to-1 NAT to our servers. We set a rule on the WAN to “Allow ICMP from * to *.” You may be able to get away with a tougher regulation, but we prefer this one. Ping responses from our pfSense deployments are always enabled. As Moshe suggests, you can use a “Allow ICMP from * to *” command, or “Allow ICMP echoreq from * to WAN Subnet>” if you want to be more restrictive. One thing to keep in mind, which has tripped me up in the past, is that you must make echo requests rather than echo answers.
