PfSense MultiWan fails every second connection
localhost last edited by
I have successfully deployed several pfSense ALIX and WRAP boards. Now I have a problem getting MultiWan to work. Every second connection doesnt reach its destination. Here's the outline of my network:
DSL, directly on WAN Interface
Router IP 192.168.250.1 Subnet 192.168.250.0/24 <– Netgear Router, pfSense as DMZ on IP 192.168.250.2
What should I set as gateway for firewall rule number one? I've set up everything according to the pfsense multiwan howto for 1.2 and I'm using pfSense 1.22.
No static routes defined. Do I need any because of using PPPoE on the WAN interface? I couldnt find anything appropiate on the forum. I've even set up a static route for the monitor IP on OPT1, but that doesnt change a thing.
The rule was:
Interface Network Gateway Description
LAN 188.8.131.52/32 192.168.250.1
Proto Source Port Destination Port Gateway Schedule Description
- LAN net * WAN address * * Make sure WAN traffic goes to right interface
- LAN net * OPT1 net * 192.168.250.1 Make sure OPT1 traffic goes to right interface
- LAN net * * * LoadBalance Everything else gets shared out
The system log shows these events periodically:
Jan 30 14:17:09 kernel: arpresolve: can't allocate route for 192.168.250.1
Jan 30 14:17:09 kernel: arplookup 192.168.250.1 failed: host is not on local network
Furthermore, failover detection doesnt work.
This is my loadbalancer setup:
Name Type Servers/Gateways Port Monitor Description
LoadBalance gateway wan 184.108.40.206
(balance) opt1 220.127.116.11 Round Robin load balancing
WAN1FailsToWAN2 gateway opt1 18.104.22.168
(failover) wan 22.214.171.124 WAN 2 preferred when WAN 1 fails
WAN2FailsToWan1 gateway wan 126.96.36.199
(failover) opt1 188.8.131.52 WAN 1 preferred when WAN 2 fails
Even if I disconnect the modem on 192.168.250.0, the link remains UP. Might be because of the system log error?
Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe I'll try to use an additional router on the WAN Interface and switch the WAN interface to static IP. I dont know anything else I could try...
