Does Traffic shaping work on one interface when using multi-WAN or not at all?



  • I am preparing to add a second internet connection to my site, and am about to replace my M0n0wall software with PFSense, so I can make use of the Multi-WAN capabilities. I'm using V1.2.3 RC1.

    I know that there is no comprehensive traffic shaping capability that covers both WAN links, but I am wondering if the Traffic Shaping will work correctly on one of the links (I assume the WAN link).  Is that the case, or is traffic shaping completely out of the picture?

    Thanks,  Jeff

    Bump.  I'm using 1.2.3-RC3 and would love to use the traffic shaper as well.  Any news/insights into when (if at all) traffic shaping will work with loadbalancing?
