I have configured a fresh CentOS 6.2 installation on VMWare ESXi with an E1000 NIC, static IP, defined a correct default gateway, subnet mask, and DNS servers.
I use a pfSense as my virtual router/firewall and I can
ping other hosts in the LAN net as well as hosts over the L2L VPN without issue.
However, when I try to
ping 126.96.36.199 it fails. When performing a
traceroute, the only hop it gets to is the first to
10.2.1.1 (the default gateway).
I have many Windows hosts behind the same firewall/router and they can connect to the Internet without issue. (If you cannot tell, I'm not a linux guy.)
I have confirmed that NetworkManager is not running.
I am scratching my head here - is it a VMWare issue? An MTU issue? CentOS issue?
EDIT 1: Now onto pfSense. Check in Edit log to see old content.
My routes table looks ok (blanked out my WAN default gateway, but it is right):
default xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx UGS 0 71607842 1500 em0 188.8.131.52 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx UGHS 0 86984 1500 em0 184.108.40.206 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx UGHS 0 101336 1500 em0
