    LAN 192.168.1.1/24

    Hi, i'm a complete newbie to Pfsense and Networking, but i've managed to get the above setup working nicely in my home network.

    The problem i have is when i want to access both DSL1 and DSL2 modem's GUI interface from my LAN.

    Sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't.

    I'm pretty sure it's down to the load balancing, so when i try and access 192.168.2.2 on WAN1 for example, the traffic sometimes gets routed through WAN2 and vice versa.

    How do i ensure that traffic from my LAN to either DSL1 or DSL2 get routed through the correct WAN.  I assume i'll need a static route, but i've not managed to get that working yet.

    Help appreciated.



  • ok, i think it may have fixed it myself.

    I've just tried adding two firewall rules for outbound LAN traffic to the specific IPs and it appears to be working.
