I have a very strange behaviour on my Pfsense.
It looks a lot like the problem here:
BUT here is the funny part
The whole setup worked with pf 2.2.xx or so. That was 4 years ago.
Now, when I try to do the same thing again, it does not work.
AND if I restore the old backup, it works ???
AND I took screenshots of every page in the setup and copied everything 1:1 to the new installation, but still no luck.
So in my case the Vigor is not the problem or at least there is a setting that is not available via the GUI?
At the moment I am deleting everything in the working backup until there is nothing but the bare installation and hopefully I will find a solution to this mysterious problem.
But if you have any idea where to look, I’d be very grateful.
It gets even better
When I delete all the unnecessary stuff and finally run the PPOE setup wizard again, it fails?
So I made a backup before and after running the wizard and found that there is a difference in one line.
Where “y” and “on” and the visible letters between the “-” are different.
Does this ring a bell or is it just a coincidence?
