When creating a QinQ it works until reboot.
When creating a QinQ interface it works fine but the configuration stop working until reboot. The system tells a "interfce mismatch". And you have to assign again the interfaces.

mmmm...sorry because I am not giving any screenshot, but im not at the office right now.
I have been testing like 2 days with no success on making the QinQ available.
i will try to explain because my english is not very good.
I am trying to pass vlans into a parent vlan provided by the ISP. The parent vlan is 13, and what I did when I posted the thread is just enable this parent vlan on an interface. This is working. but because is just working like a normal vlan. just 1 vlan. 13.
The interface tab looked like this:
So the second step was to send some vlan into that parent vlan, so I first create the vlan 13 in QinQ tab. Then I create the vlan 100 on the "VLAN" tab with the interface vlan_13.
Then on "Interfaces" tab I assign something like this:
VLAN100 (vlan1000 on re0_13)
But this is not working. It just work the WAN insterface as the first example but the vlan is not passing.
I am really not sure if there is something on pfsense that is not configured yet or I am configuring it wrong.

Ok here are some screenshots:
1. First I create the QinQ with the SVLAN 13 and as member the VLAN 1000.
2. I create my vlan 1000 on the port recently created by QinQ (re0_13).
3. I assign to the WAN interface the QinQ created port (re0_13), and add a new interface OPT1.
After doing this I assign the IPs to the insterfaces and gateways etc. I noticed that just the WAN interface assigned to the re0_13 is working. but the vlan 1000 is not been encapsulated.
Another issue is that when rebooting I receive a "Network interface mismatch" and need to reassign the interfaces again.

An improvement is in newest snapshots.

I have tested the changes and now the members are displayed correctly, thanks for that.
So I tryied again to configure the QinQ on a lab enviroment as this:
1. Create the parent VLAN and members
2. Now I see that in the interface assignments there are several new ports, so I am really not sure which one select:
3. If I selected like this, I assign IP but there is no communication, the interfaces appear like a "X" on the dashboard, when I reboot the changes are saved, but It seems that the interfaces not get up.
4.So If I selected with the other ports like this I can only communicate on the re0_13 but on the others I can not communicate, the interfaces seems to be up, but when I reboot the interfaces missmatch appear and I have to reassign the interfaces.
I think there is still a problem here with QinQ
Thanks a lot.

I'm experiencing the same trouble with qinq.
My platform : Pfsense 2.0 amd64
What I am trying to do :
I have a switch where each port is isolated by one different vlan except my gigabit port witch is defined as vlan trunk. I do this because in each port I can have a whole network that can conflict with the network that is connected into the next port.
My pfsense is connected to the port that is vlan trunk. let's say igb3 witch I configured as OPT3 in order to be able to comunicate with the default vlan 1.
I need to configure pfsense to have one "virtual" interface per vlan.
So I went to QinQ and configure one QinQ configuration :
Name : test
first vlan : 1
create interfaces in order to make easy rules selected
and 1-24 as vlan members
That action create me one interface group that is configured default to WAN so I correct it to put it as OPT3
And then the interface configuration show up with "do you want vlan", who is wan, who is lan etc etc ........ If I enter again the same datas it ask me forever. If I just put Wan and Lan and then just ignore the rest I can follow on.
What I made wrong, Is it a bug ?
Why this ticket has been closed without fix shown ?
