PFsense DHCp leases not loading

Hey everyone I am trying to open DHCP Leases page and it is showing me up this error can someone help ??

No reason to redact the ip since this is your LAN and nobody cares what ip you have.

Can you access the pfsense main page?

if not, your WAN is not configured to get the proper public IP and gateway.

You have to set your general setting for DNS to “Use local DNS (, fallback to remote DNS Servers (Defualt)” if you have forwarding mode enabled in your DNS resolver settings.

When you first setup or do a factory reset, the WAN should technically work out of the box. the default LAN IP should be, if you can access that then the internet should work as it should.

Still, it’s not working out. At the end it just shows ngnix error. Sometimes it start to show up on it’s own but then after sometime it does not.

Do you have DNS forwarding enabled in your DNS settings?
