Using PFSense ver:2.0-RC1 (i386)
When changing an existing NAT rule in pfsense I find that the rule doesn't work when: 1. the rule existed but with a change to its port number or destination LAN ip or both 2. mapping was done using pfsense load balance but that is disabled to use NAT instead.
In both the above mentioned cases I always had to reboot the firewall. As if a bug in the system.
My current situation is as given below:
Rule that existed: src-any:port1 --nat--> lan-ip1:port2
Rule modified to : src-any:port1 --nat--> lan-ip1:port3
Rules were altered and loaded. I verified from the shell as well. it showed the changed nat settings. But connection fails. I did a reset state from web-gui, but that worked momentarily and later failed.
I have checked in LAN network and found the service working. It fails only from Internet with firewall in between.
Is there any shell/cli method by which I can get this working. Any freebsd/pfsense command that can help me here. For, I cannot restart the firewall until mid-night (allowed downtime).
