After following the instructions here:
I am running pfsense 2.5.1-RELEASE** (amd64) on protectli hardware.
I lose (normal) contact with the internet when the DNS Resolver is stopped. I must enable the DNS Resolver in order to access the dashboard. Adam:One is enabled on the adam:ONE/Settings, and Automatically manage DNS firewall rules is checked. The Router Configuration page on Dashboard indicates it can see my router. In fact, the dashboard lists all devices in my DHCP assignments, so it has definitely obtained information from the router.
I see (2) NAT Port Forward rules and (1) LAN rule that Adam:One set up.
All of my devices were already set to require DNS from the pfsense firewall prior to the install, and no device is allowed off network via port 53 or 853. The point is that I know my devices look to the router for DNS.
I do have my DNS directed to OpenDNS as indicated on Status / Dashboard: DNS Servers are 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
I am rather confused about how the instructions say to turn off the resolver but then directs you later to set up the Adam:One details. Following those instructions, it was impossible to set up the Adam:One account because DNS was down at step 2.
All of my devices are in the Basic Blacklist policy which I have not changed.
I’ve read through the Quick Start Guide. Hopefully I haven’t missed anything obvious.
