Ok, having a weird problem here:

After installing the firewall (6.0.11) internet from the firewall machine works just fine, blocking certain ports works fine, opening them also etc., but i can not get any connection to the rest of the LAN.

I have DHCP enabled and i share files and printers over the LAN, but the firewall machine cant even find its own workgroup and the clients on the LAN cant find the DHCP server.

So i fiddled around a bit, and it turns out, that uninstalling the NIC connected to the LAN, rebooting and reinstalling the NIC as "Lan Connection #x" (i am at #6 now) does the trick.

This of course is a bit annoying, the firewall machine usually runs 24/7 so it doesnt happen often but everytime i need to reboot the machine, LAN is gone until i uninstall/reinstall the LAN NIC and set the rules to the "new" LAN connection #x.

license sais its fine when i log in.

Edit: also, the filter log does not say anything about anything being blocked, dropped, denied, whatever.
i tried uninstalling the software, after that, LAN still was unavailable until i reinstalled the NIC again.

And when you have Kerio uninstalled and you reboot the machine the NIC is gone again? If so its not kerio thats causing the problem. In that case check for the latest drivers or reinstall the OS.

The NIC isnt gone, it just cant make any connection.

When i uninstall kerio, the problem is still there -> dead LAN. When i uninstall/reinstall the NIC after that, LAN works fine even after a reboot, as soon as i install kerio again -> dead LAN.

The other NIC connected to the internet always works like a charm btw, i have internet connection all the time, no problem.


And the weird thing isnt that its not working, there are of course thousands of reasons why it might not work, the weird thing is that it DOES work after i uninstall ther NIC in the device manager, then do a "scan for hardware changes", integrate the "newly found"-NIC into my winroute rulesset and voila -> LAN is alive.
