2 WAN links

  • I want to use 2 WAN links but not for load balancing. I want the backup link to become live only if the main WAN link is down. Is this possible in Pfsense?

  • Not yet but we already talked about that. Don't expect that before pfSense 1.1 though.
    Atm you can do loadbalancing and/or policy based routing with linkfailure detection (link will be excluded from pool when down).

  • I also need to have the BACKUP function on PFSense!!
    What would be VERY interesting to me is this:

    I need to NAT my LAN IP addresses in different ways depending on which WAN is in use.
    I mean:

    My LAN is

    My WAN1 is (PFSense NIC is

    My WAN2 is (PFSense NIC is

    My default wan is WAN1. I want to use NAT to change each ip from 10.0.0.x to 192.168.1.x
    When my default wan (WAN1) is down, PFSense must use WAN2 and must nat each ip
    from 10.0.0.x to 192.168.2.x

    Thanks in advance for any help.


  • As I said, this is not yet implemented. Patches accepted.
