WAN Failover not... failing over



  • We have 2 pfsense firewalls, running on WatchGuard Fireboxes. One running our VOIP network (192.168.1.0/24) and one running our data network (192.168.0.0/24)

    Each box has it's own PPoE VDSL connection on the WAN interface.

    I've been trying to set up WAN failover on the Data (192.168.0.1) box and have failed so far to get it working.

    I created an extra interface called it DataVoiceLink on the data box and gave it an IP 192.168.1.2

    I created a gateway called GW_Voice and assigned it to interface DataVoiceLink with gateway IP of 192.168.1.1 (which is the IP of the Voice box)

    I then created a gateway group called it WAN_Group
    I added GW_Voice and GW_Data to this group
    GW_Wan I set Priority Tier1
    GW_Voice I set Priority Tier2
    Trigger Level: Member down

    Then,Upstream gateway I set to GW_Voice (192.168.1.1)

    I then plugged DataVoiceLink port into the Data network switch.

    The gateways both show as being up (green) but when I pull the ethernet from the GW_Wan connection then I loose all internet connectivity. GW_Wan goes red and GW_Voice stays green.

    I'm struggling slightly as this is a fairly odd setup with two separate devices there isn't a lot of documentation explaining setup.

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    Once I get this up & running I am planning to migrate everything to our new SG-5100 but that'll be in a few months time.

    TIA

    Pete



  • Forgot to mention, I also then edited the LAN rule to allow all on lan to all using Wan_Group gateway.
