hey I got pfSense on a ProtectLi
It was working fine, then randomly I lost web browser access so I reset to factory settings via pfSense terminal plug in.
Now I can’t access the browser GUI via the usual 192.168.1.1 even though it clearly says that is the IP in the pfSense terminal homescreen.
I tried resetting the interfaces, it’s even doing auto detection on the LAN port. And I tried plugging the cable in literally every port
Did your check the IP of the client that is trying to connect to the pfsense GUI? Set a static address on the same subnet (and outside the dhcp range). Did you change the default SSH port?
From the pfsense console, you can specify LAN as 192.168.1.1 enable DHCP and provide range. Your laptop (client) should get an ip from that range. If you disabled https, access with http://192.168.1.1
Can you please elaborate on how to change the static address of the client? Why do I want it OUTSIDE the DHCP range? don’t I need it to be inside to get a DHCP lease?
Didn’t change SSH port, it was reset to factory settings
If you assign a static ip within the range, DHCP is not notified so DHCP could issue that same ip to another client. If your range is .100-.200, make a static less than .100
Somehow I resolved this. I reset it and changed both IPs 100 times and now it works. not 100% how
Thanks for your help
