Nightly "deactivation" of WAN interfaces



  • Hi,

    I set up a load balancer with failover according to the tutorial http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/MultiWanVersion1.2 . It works well - so far so good :-)

    Now I want to definitifely ensure that no traffic goes from pfsense to the WAN gateways over night (it's a cost issue). Assume that WAN gateway #1 has IP 192.168.0.254 (and pfsense's IP on its interface that is connected to this gateway is 192.168.0.1), WAN gateway #2 has IP 192.168.1.254 (pfsense has 192.168.1.1 on that subnet), Client-LAN is 192.168.10.0/24 (pfsense 192.168.10.254).

    What firewall rules do I have to add if I want to assure that no traffic originates from pfsense's interfaces 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 towards the WAN gateways?

    Is it possible to activate these rules only over night?

    Thanks for your help,
    Lena
