Can you ping the gateway 213.xx.xx.81?
Does that gateway have connection to the internet?
Does it allow pings or does it block them?
Does it allow you to access the internet?
In addition to Blaz's comment...are you trying to ping via hostname or IP address?  Is DNS correctly configured on the pfSense?  Does web browsing work from behind the pfSense?
