I am currently having trouble gaining internet access from the PC. Any suggestions or advice would be most welcome :)

enter image description here

In order to diagnose a much larger issue, I have scaled my lab configuration down to just the basics. - pfsense firewall - 1 x router: e0:, e1: - 1 x PC: static IP address (attached to the Router)

I am able to Ping, traceroute, and telnet to the outside ( (aka Google)) from the PC, but when I open a web browser, the system just times out.

Router config:

interface Embedded-Service-Engine0/0
 no ip address
interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 ip address
 ip nat outside
 ip virtual-reassembly in
 duplex auto
 speed auto
interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 ip address
 ip nat inside
 ip virtual-reassembly in
 duplex auto
 speed auto
ip forward-protocol nd
no ip http server
no ip http secure-server
ip nat inside source list 1 interface GigabitEthernet0/0 overload
ip route GigabitEthernet0/0
access-list 1 permit

Thank you all again for your time,

  • Are you browsing to the IP or the host name? If host name, have you confirmed dns is resolving correctly for you? – dareuja Feb 27 '16 at 1:13

    It depends on how you are assigning your IP addresses to your hosts. If you are manually assigning them, you need to assign DNS servers to them, too. You can assign local DNS server(s), ISP DNS server(s), or public (such as Google) DNS servers. If you are using DHCP to assign them, you need to make sure your DHCP server is assigning valid DNS servers, otherwise, you may need to manually assign them. Beyond than that, end-device (PCs and servers) configurations are off topic here, but you can ask those sorts of questions on Super User. – Ron Maupin Feb 27 '16 at 2:20
