Troubleshooting VLANs

I installed a few images:

  • Kali Linux
  • Metasploit
  • Ubuntu

Kali is on the “main” virtual lan of 168.1 while I wanted metasploit and ubuntu on one of the vlans. Enabling the vlan tag in proxmox didn’t work. None of the vlans would assign an IP address, they didn’t have internet access and couldn’t ping pfsense

I tried adjusting several setting in the pfsense gui too include pools, lan rules and a few others.

After some google-ing, issue was that I had enabled “vlan aware” on my virtual network hardware, but the change hadn’t actually applied to the node. I restarted proxmox and the problem was resolved.
