pfSense WAN lagg group
I am setting up an new xcp-ng cluster in a quarter rack.
The datacenter is providing only 1 cat5 drop to my unit.
What I would like to do is minimise the risk of downtime and have everything in HA with the single cat5 drop as the single point of failure.
1x PowerEdge C6220 with 4x node
2x Dell PowerConnect 5548
2x pfSense (6 ports each)
1x Dell Powervault MD3200i
The plan was to create 1x vlan99 of 7 port on each switch.
port1 - cat5 feed in
port2 - pfSense1
port3 - pfSense2
port4 - pfSense1
port5 - pfSense2
port6 - conection to vlan99 to switch2
port7 - conection to vlan99 to switch2
port1 - conection to vlan99 to switch1
port2 - conection to vlan99 to switch1
port3 - pfSense1
port4 - pfSense2
port5 - pfSense1
port6 - pfSense2
The idea here is if a port on the switch fails, the wan remain online via the second port.
Both PowerConnect are stack via HDMI.
My question is:
- Is this feasible/possible
- is there a better way to do it?
In pfSense I when I set 2 ports has lagg group with LACP and set it to be the wan.
In the switch, I set all the port connected to the pfSense lagg to be lagg lacp.
But then I lose the gateway and access to the internet.
Does anyone know why I lose the connection to the gateway? Do I need to tell pfSense that it needs to be looking for vlan99?
Thank you in advance
