WAN Routing Rules
m0nonoke last edited by
I have a pfSense 1.2 multiwan setup configured and running as follows
WAN (192.168.162.x) & OPT1 (192.168.1.x)
WAN default gateway (192.168.162.254)
OPT1 default gateway (192.168.1.254)
I have two gateways on the WAN (192.168.162.x) network and I want to route packets from the LAN destined for 184.108.40.206 via an alternative gateway on the WAN network (192.168.162.70).
I can't see how to add an additional gateway in the rules configuration screen.

I don't think it's possible to do policy routing this way in 1.2.x, but apparently it is an added feature in 2.0.
However, you could just create a static route for that IP/subnet via the other gateway. Or if the routers all support it, use RIP.

A "kind of ugly" solution would be:
1: Create in the loadbalance-config a failoverpool with a single dummy-entry.
2: Download the config.xml and moddify the dummy to the gateway you want (make sure you have a monitor IP which is pingable).
3: Restore the config.xml and you should now be able to select this failoverpool from the dropdown in the firewall-rule config.
