VPS second IP/NIC



  • So I have a RamNode VPS with KVM running pfsense 2.3.1_1. I purchased a second IP from RamNode so I can do a HA Proxy for multiple sites I run. I am unable to get PFSense to recognize the second NIC with Virtio, Realtek 8139, and Intel PRO/1000 Drivers. Any idea where to start manually adding this, or determining if in fact, its possible on their system?  They sent me to you.



  • please run the following commands. it will help the forum debug your issue:

    dmesg
    pciconf -lv
    


  • dmesg doesn't show any errors (Or second NIC) and pciconf shows only the first NIC

    re0@pci0:0:3:0:	class=0x020000 card=0x11001af4 chip=0x813910ec rev=0x20 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
        device     = 'RTL-8100/8101L/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter'
        class      = network
        subclass   = ethernet
    


  • So after talking to my VPS provider more found out its not a second NIC I need to configure, but an IP Alias. Did it inside the pfSense GUI and all is working.
