Trying to Force a server to use a different gateway.
I'm using a pfsense firewall on my network with two gateways we will call them Primary and failover. I have one server that needs to run on the failover gateway. I tried to create a LAN firewall rule that redirects that server to the failover gateway but it seems to fail. I'm newish to pfsense and need some help to figure this out.
I created a top rule on my LAN network with
Source <that servers ip address>
but that server is still using the primary gateway for the firewall and not the failover.
Any suggestions on how to go about doing this?

The syntax is fine. If it is the first rule on the LAN, then try clearing the states. Also check the order and status of your gateway group.
Thanks dotsash that fixed it for me.

@fr334fr4nk Can you just hard code the IP of the server to use the failover gateway. It's only one.
Disregard, I read "doesn't fix it for me"
