Web GUI becomes slow or unusable if the LDAP server used for GUI auth is unreachable
This one have been difficult to find.
I set up a ldap server in user manager through the web gui. Everything works fine.
One day I made a reboot of my virtual environment and the ldap server wasn't in the boot process. The web gui of pfsense wasn't availble. Actually it was but horribly slow and impossible to get out from the index.html.
Then I made a reboot of the ldap server and it works well.
Yesterday, I destroyed my VM ldap and create a new ldap server with a new IP. of course, my pfsense wasn't able to reach the old one. The result was the same. Impossible to reach normally the web GUI.
Then when I use viconfig to delete the ldap reference, everything woks fine.
I think it's a bug and maybe a warning could be thrown if too many attempt to reach a server failed.
hope it can help.
