If WAN is down, then show a page at the LAN clients, that says the WAN is down?



  • Is it possible to have the following config:?

    
    WAN LINK (Modem, or whatever?!) - STATUS: DOWN
           |
           |
           |
    --------------------------------------                         -------------------------
    |                                    |                        |                        |
    |   pfsense router/firewall          | ------------------------|   LAN machine           |  <- requests google.com > gets a page saying that the Internet connection
    |                                    |                        |                        |       is currently down
    --------------------------------------                         --------------------------
    
    

    And then this:

    
    WAN LINK (Modem, or whatever?!) - STATUS: UP
           |
           |
           |
    --------------------------------------                         -------------------------
    |                                    |                        |                        |
    |   pfsense router/firewall          | ------------------------|   LAN machine           |  <- requests google.com > gets google.com
    |                                    |                        |                        |      
    --------------------------------------                         --------------------------

  • Not really at this time, but thats an interesting idea.



  • No way that I can think of to do this without hacking up something. you would need something like bringing up the captive portal with that information when wan is down. not doable with a stock pfsense yet.



  • OK, I'm looking very much forward to see if that function comes into pfSense  ;) :D

    Thanks for a very great firewall OS
