pfsense – traceroute not working

pfsensetraceroute not working (getting blocked by firewall)

Solution:

traceroute without a parameter uses UDP to get the hops. I figured out that this traffic is getting blocked because the destination port is not permitted.

The port changes from around 33440 ongoing (+1 every time), so this is dynamic and can’t be solved with one single port.

With the parameter -I you use ICMP.

Currently i have a rule which is allowing ICMP traffic to the wan network and now it is working with the parameter.

I also need this rule to ping wan hosts. This is also going over ICMP.
