the pfsense that i have installed inside my company uses proxy connections to get updates from pfsense sites.
I noted that package manager is not able to get the available packages or to retreive the last versions for the packages previously installed.
on the "available packages" i have this error message
"Unable to communicate with Please verify DNS and interface configuration, and that pfSense has functional Internet connectivity."

In the main dashboard is also reported a crash which shows this message
PHP Errors:
[26-Jan-2015 07:12:48 Europe/Rome] HTTP error, got response: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request

Whith a packet capture i saw that a POST to is the cause

5 07:08:41.038470 HTTP/XML 81 8080 39551 POST HTTP/1.0
8 07:08:41.360524 HTTP 523 39551 8080 HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request (text/html)

This not happens for release updates.

A workaround is to replace with on /etc/inc/ but maybe is better to notify you this issue if it should be solved for next releases

I don't believe this was ever a (general) problem. It's been in feedback for 8 months. Assigning to cmb, and marking it 'Closed'.

If it comes back up, cmb to investigate.
