Pfsense Tunnel isn't actually disconnecting when rebooting pfsense?

Recommended Posts

Good Morning,


I've noticed over the past week since i have started installing development version of pfsense (currently 2.4.5.a.20180918.0149):


i did this remotely at work yesterday and i lost internet at home entirely..


  since my network being down is quite a bad thing i started trying to fix it remotely.  spectrum has a feature to login to their site and reboot the modem.   i did that AND i logged into my airvpn account and under client area i disconnected my session.   5 minutes later my internet was backup.


this morning there was another update.   i applied the update and it automatically rebooted.  i lost connection again.    this time i simply disconnected my session under client area.     5 minutes later my connection was backup.


not pointing fingers at all here.   i just wanted to share my experience and hopefully this will save someone some driving

UDP connections may seem to linger.  Use the option "explicit-exit-notify 5" to make UDP connections terminate nicely.


Also note, that option can't be used with TCP connections.
