Well I fixed the computer that was running pfSense. I have no idea
what the other people did to it, but I was able to reset it back to
the default settings & after I did that then configured it properly it
now works. I might try on another box some of the other systems as the
anti-virus software for pfSense is still in Alpha. I don't like the
idea of running software that is in the Alpha stage on a server that
feeds the Internet to the desktops.
