Does Multi WAN work with a dynamic address on one interface?

  • I have a setup where I have 2 WANS, one with a static address, and one with only a dynamic address available.  Form reading the docs, it seemed like load balancing and failover was possible with one or more interfaces that are dynamic.

    However, when I tried to configure this (on version 1.2.2), I found that the interfaces will only appear in the selector in the Load Balancing dialog if they have been configured as static.  Is there something I am doing wrong?

    I'm going to try 1.2.3RC1 to see if that behaves differently, but I would appreciate it if someone could tell me if this is supposed to work or not.


  • I've one short question about the use of a dynamic IP on the WAN site.

    I've used this doc:

    In the firewall rules the second rules contains
    network: / 24

    What is the right setting when u have a dynamic IP address on the WAN interface?

  • In the firewall rules the second rules contains
    network: / 24

    None of the rules depend on anything about the WAN configuration, you don't need to change them.

  • But I don't have a 192.168.0.x network.

    WAN1 = 213.101.x.x (dynamic, modem ISP1)
    OPT1 = 172.16.0.x (static, router ISP2)
    LAN = 192.168.100.x

    What is the destination value of DMZ1?

  • Are you even using a DMZ? You need to adjust the various rules and so-on that are in the tutorials to match your own addresses if you're not going to use the ones in the example.
