@nathand there’s a difference between for example connection refused, no response, and no route to host.

But these would (I’m assuming here) all likely be presented by Safari as “can’t connect to XYZ”

Connection refused can either mean there’s no service running OR firewall is up and rejecting

No response can mean the remote server is frozen OR firewall is up and is dropping

And no route to host would just mean that the IP address I’m trying to reach likely doesn’t exist on the network

@galdrakinn been working quite a bit but I finally got some virtual machines set up for my gaming experience! :D

@galdrakinn good morning to you as well :) I hope you have a nice day! What are your plans?

PCI passthrough was a pain in the ass to get working.

Finally figured out I had to pass `pci_acs_override=downstream,multifunction` to the kernel to enable the ACS patches so that I could separate the RealTek NIC from the electrical IOMMU group that it was sharing with the storage controller

Maybe want to go with PCI pass through as the NIC to be used is pci

@kai from what I understand, this won’t help much as the pfSense is the only VM to use the interface and bridge

@wholesomedonut I believe it’s bridged, but I’ve set it to use the recommended settings by pfSense for making a proxmox VM found here:


I can reach the LAN address but the WAN does not get an IP from the upstream DHCP server. It just hangs like it did on older hardware (3rd gen intel cpu)


pfSense works fine with the new modem on raw hardware...but not virtualized, any ideas?

@kai I mean, I was venting because some people just are NOT on the same page as me today and I needed to tell some to stop fucking around and get their shit together

How do you tell someone to stop being a moron without telling them to stop being a moron?

I'm SO done with turning volume up and down between the videos I watch!
