Can not change Monitor IPs
I have failover working with with my two Internet connections. I am not using Load Balancing.
I have a problem with Monitor IPs on the failover setup. Its only selecting the IPs on the router from the ISP. So I am not monitoring anything outside my offices. I would like to select a next hope router or the nameservers from the ISP.
Even if I specifically select Other and enter the IP to monitor, under Services–>Loadbalancer-->Pools, the column for Monitor still shows the ISP router gateway IPs. And the logs for the Loadbalancer (Status-->System Logs-->Loadbalancer) confirm the IPs have not changed.
This is pfSense 1.2.2
This is clip form the configuration file. The monitor IPs are the same as the WAN and OPT1 gateways. I try to change them but the changes are not saving from the GUI interface. Is this in interface bug? Or do have something incorrect some place else?
<desc>WAN1 fails to OPT1</desc>
<desc>WAN2 fails to WAN1</desc>
Clear all pools make a fresh pool of load balancer.try using open DNS servers first as monitor IPs if it works perfectly. Try ISP ones.
ISP ones will always be preferable.
I've been downloading a backup config with the GUI. I then use a text editor to search and replace the monitor IP I want to change…then I upload the "fixed" config. It would be nice to be able to edit this value without having to reconstruct the pool.
