Using pfsense as proxy server only with other dual wan router



  • Hello!

    I'm thinking to deploy a pfsense machine with 2 ifs (lan+wan) acting as default gateway for the clients.
    I will use squid + squidguard to block content and transparent proxy option.
    At the WAN if of pfsense i will connect a router with dual wan capabilities like draytek vigor 2910 which will handle 2 adsl lines with load balancing and fail over.
    My question is: If i do this will i have proxy capabilities with fail over? (as pfsense cannot handle transparent proxy with dual wan on the same machine).

    Here is a simple graph:

    |–>wan1
    LAN --->Pfsense (proxy server)--> vigor --|
                                                              |
                                                              -->wan2

    thank you
