I am trying to configure pfSense in vmware workstation 8 on Win 7 host. My internet connection is always-on static ip type so I am given range of IP addresses and gateway with DNS. But before I could access any website I need to do web-based authentication by putting in user credentials (user/pass) on the url given by ISP and I am ready to access any website. So, I can see a green lights on the pfSense homepage (webconfigurator) and I can also tracert DNS (as shown below) privided by ISP but it doesn't redirect to the ISP authentication page so I am not able to access any website. It shows "Unable to resolve the server's DNS address" in Chrome Browser. The redirect login url is". Is it to do with firewall settings?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

First guess, you didn't define DNS servers under System>General Setup.

It seems it was blocking the access to login web page as it was considering it to be "DNS Rebinding attack". When I disabled it in the System->Advanced configuration page, it worked. – om sai May 21 '13 at 5:40
