Basic question - multiple LANs with multi WAN



  • I have set up a firewall with 2 failover WAN connections. I have also created two separate LANs. For some reason traffic from one LAN to the other goes out to the WAN instead to the appropriate LAN. Do the gateway groups overrule local routing in the pfsense box? Do I need to set up static routes?

    It's doing exactly as it's told. :)

    You don't need static routes, but you do need to pass the traffic using a rule without a gateway.

    For example:

    pass from LAN1 to LAN2 with no gateway set
    pass from LAN1 to any using your failover gateway



  • Added the rules, works now. Thanks!
