Same gateway over 4 nics



  • how can I get all 4 nics to be on the same subnet.

    I have 3 going to just a server and the other 1 goes to everything else in the house.

    I want the server to be on the same gateway so the rest of the house (10.0.0.1) at the minute its on (10.0.1.1)

    I have a lagg set up going to the Server 3x 1gb

    Check my awesome paint drawing out, as you can see there is 3 going to the server and one for the rest I just can't seem to work out how to keep the lagg and join them all on the same gateway

    Thanks

    Really you should use a switch here unless you also need to filter between the clients and server.

    It's possible to bridge the interfaces but it's ugly and probably not what you want.

    Why do those need to be in the same subnet?

    I agree, Not sure why you posted that here than with that link. Not the same question at all.

    Plex does not work as it can not see the other gateway
    Port fowarding does not seem to work.
    Bridge did not work
    I did add a switch onto one of them cards but the whole lan died.



  • Yes it is, your design is a cludge and your other post is in the NAT section.

    You'll only ever achieve a maximum of 1Gbps throughput with this setup, what your doing is pointless

    Other post was about to make a 3gb trunk this post is about how to have the trunk and lan on the same gateway. How is that the same topic?

    Please explain why its pointless.



  • pfSense is a router not a switch.

    3 x 1Gbps ports connected to your router as a LAG will only ever achieve a maximum throughput of 1Gbps as your clients are hanging off another 1Gbps connection.

    Have a read up on LACP.

    I never said it was a switch, Worked for this guy

    Are you bridging on your pfSense box as per the diagram ?

    You mentioned "how can I get all 4 nics to be on the same subnet."



  • No im not I did try that but didn't work out to good so far im here.

    Right thats what made me think you were bridging the 4 ports.

    If you want everything on the same subnet and to LAG your server, you really need a switch that you can LAG ports on and connect stuff there.

    Got an example of a cheap one? Ive just spent £300 on cat7 cables trying to fix my packetloss errors for it all to be the same if not worse.



  • I use Linksys 308p switches as I run 7 vlans and require POE for my access-point.

    https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/18413-linksys-lgs308p-uk/ << POE 8 port

    https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/18412-linksys-lgs308-uk/ << NON POE 8 port

    https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/18419-linksys-lgs318-uk/ << NON POE 16 port

    Check the devices supports IEEE 802.3ad LACP, there will be cheaper than I have.

    There are loads of posts on the forum asking for switch recommendations.

    Thanks ill have a look for one.

    will the 3 nics in my server not support  IEEE 802.3ad LACP than?

    Not a clue sorry as I don't use OMV, but looking in the documentation it does mention LACP, but do you have a good reason to even use it.

    Even viewing Blu Ray 1080p mkv files you'd get nowhere near 1Gbps.

  • Well after spending alot of money upgrade to cat 7 and trying this out is all to my packet loss.
    https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=146285.msg803597#msg803597

    Just trying to get it working.

    edit sorry yes I did bond on OMV dos say it works on 802.3ad.

    You can't fix packet loss on the WAN interface by upgrading your LAN. You really need to learn the basics of networking,

    I thought it would be bottlenecking pfsense with all the connections. it only happends when that server is on.


  • Netgate Administrator

    The packet loss will be WAN side, I'd bet money on it!

    Since you have torrents running there it probably just traffic fro9m the server saturating the WAN connection. Some traffic shaping could probably help there.

    I did the traffic shaping wizard not nothing at all worked well packet loss was higher

    The wizards sets up the basics, you have to manually configure/tune the shapers/rules to match your use-case. Traffic shaping is not something you can setup in 5 Minutes and be done with it.



  • do cheap routers do all this auto? I mean the £15 router I bought last year seems to fix all the problems. Pfsense tho as addons which I love.



  • Well after spending alot of money upgrade to cat 7

    CAT 7 won't do much.  Gb is designed to work over CAT5 cable, though CAT6 is often used.
