failover not working in 2.5 beta?
I've got a dual wan configuration with cable (dhcp) and dsl (pppoe). Cable is set to first priority, dsl to second priority in the gateway group with the default route set to the gateway group (ipv6 disabled in interface, set to automatic in routing); however, when the cable connection goes offline it never seems to switch over despite cable in the gateways tab coming up as offline.
Does anyone else have this problem? Some clients are on the dsl by default by firewall rule so I know that's working but so far failover never seems to do anything when an interface goes offline.
turned out to be that setting default gateway to failover gateway group does not function correctly, have to set it in the default lan rule advanced for it to function correctly
It doesn’t actually restore the tier one gateway after it successfully fails over to tier 2.
I have no idea what’s happening on the pfsense level but Ive just now had a momentary failover and (supposed) restore and in netstat -rn it looks like one residue is having two wan (hn0) and (pppoe0) both with default destination. Is that normal? If so the order is such that it hits the tier 2 interface (pppoe) first
Destination Gateway Flags Netif Expire
default 184.175.xx.xx UGS hn0
default 206.248.xxx.xxx UGS pppoe0
Hn0 = tier 1, opt1 (pppoe0) = tier 2
Ok, it appears to be this problem
At least it’s known
Interesting. it turns out when failover doesn't switch back to tier 1 if I reset filter rules that it will go back. So it doesn't actually matter to have wrong double default gateways when the default lan rules have the gateway set to failover group in advanced. I wonder if it's not updating the variable for my failover group to the proper interface via "route-to" to what I see in the /tmp/rules.debug or is not applying it.
