Title: Default network rule for opnsense router
Post by: tre4bax on November 14, 2018, 10:10:55 pm
I have a problem to which I have a work around.

When working on the opnsense box itself I get no access to the internet unless I add a defined static network route.

The DNS servers I use ( and must have a route defined.  I had to define a route for opnsense to use to run the update and now I am seeing lack of connection from Let's encrypt so I have the same problem there.

The interesting thing is that from a computer connected to the LAN port of the opnsense box no such route needs to be defined.  You can navigate anywhere you wish.  An IP address I can ping on my PC, cannot be pinged using the  Interfaces->Diagnostics->ping tool.

If feels like something is wrong, possibly even an option I have or have not chosen by mistake.  The system is a basic one with one WAN and one LAN.  The WAN uses PPPoE through a huawei HG612, also a fairly common setup I believe.

Any help anyone can give would be gratefully received.
