How does it work ?
Nothing in the documentation about it, interfaces doesn't appear in the menu lagg and the messages in this forum and everywhere else mention a menu that doesnt exist anymore: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/131207/lagg-on-switched-ports-on-sg-3100 (previous version of Pfsense I guess)
The command line command in the above topic doesn't seem to work anymore.
What are you seeing?
What are you trying to do?
I want to use the 1st and 2nd port of the switch as a single lagg interface.
For the moment I use the 2nd port as a ''backup'' of the 1st one (simply by plugging them on the same lan, with STP capable switches).
Is there a way to do real LAGG? (the screenshot in the mentioned thread confuses me because I don't have a LAGGs menu in the Interface-->Switch section (pfSense 2.4.4)) Or is it the only way to have a backup link on my lan side ?
What you do is set two ports to the same VLAN configuration then, on the Interfaces > Switches, Ports tab you can click on the LAGG on each port and set an unused ID, Such as
1on the LAGG ports.
Note that this is a Loadbalance type lagg, not LACP, etc.
ok, thanks for your answer.
It's what I tried, but when I do that my pings stop and never recover. Is it a normal behavior with a loadbalance lagg ? (I've only used LACP on xg-7100 for the moment, with two real physical iface)?
Does this have something to do with the sg-3100 having only one mac address for the 4 switched ports ?
A layer 2 lagg should not care about MAC addresses.
You have to be sure you're connecting it to a switch in a compatible configuration.
Is it possible to do a LACP LAGG on a SG-3100? I have seen conflicting information on the pfSense forums.
Thank you for the clarification.
I have read through lots of documentation and still when I try to create a LAGG I don't have any parents interfaces to choose from. I have multiple VLANs created, dot1q enabled, etc. and simply can't get interfaces to show up in the parent interface section when trying to create a LAGG.
Can anyone assist?
Also, is the limitation of not being able to do LACP on the SG-3100 switch ports something that Netgate could add in the future with a software update?
You can only create a pfSense lagg on unassigned interfaces, so if mvneta0 and mvneta2 are assigned to interfaces under Interfaces > Assignments then those will have to be deleted first or at least moved to something else so you can retain all of the configuration. For instance you could create a couple of throwaway VLANs on mvneta1, temporarily assign WAN and OPT1 to those, thus freeing up mvneta to make the lagg, then add VLANs to the lagg, etc and reassign WAN and OPT1 to the lagg interface/VLANs. Then delete the throwaway VLANs from mvneta1.

Make sure you have working console access, in case you accidentally remove all network access to the WebUI.
