Captive Portal and Load Banlancer
Hello, thanks for provide pfsense for users.
On my config :
WAN1: 192.168.1.225/24 from a adsl-router
WAN2: 192.168.1.235/24 for 2 wan purpose
Enable captive portal: local user Authentication
at here, anything work ok, when i want to surf on web, the login page appears.
but,when i add load balancer config to pfsens system.the problem is out.
I configured "Service Balancer" call "balancer" add WAN1's gateway ip and monitor ip.
–----> at here , anyting ok. (for testing)
I changed "Firewall: Rules-LAN" from
default rule's gateway from "default" to "balancer"
------> The problem is here:
1. when i want to surf on web, the login page don't appears. direct go to the page i want to go.
2. i try to ping any ip on internet, result is time out.
3. i try to telnet a mail host 25/110 port, can't established link.
port 80 is pass anyway? ???
4. i open "http://192.168.2.254:8000/" the login auth page open, l
ogin ok, then ping/25/110 port is passed.
5. if changed "Firewall: Rules-LAN" default rule's
gateway from "balancer" to "default" anything is ok again.
client's dns,gateway has pointed to 192.168.2.254 already.
this is my issue, just like
does avaz use load balancer?
Captive portal is not compatible with the load balancer.
Is it on the road ?
Not at the present, but who knows what we'll end up with down the road.
I have load balance and i configured the Captive Portal to my LAN interface and its all right.
My configuration is:
pfSense - Version: RC2 - built on Tue Aug 1 18:14:08 UTC 2006
WAN (ADSL 1Mb)
OPT1 (ADSL 256Kb)
I do this:
1- Configure the LAN/WAN/OPT1 Ips
2- Enabled Load Balance pool (172.30.30.1/172.30.30.1 + 10.59.0.1/10.59.0.1)
3- Test the download speed, it was around 148 KB/s. I monitored the traffic in WAN and OPT1 and the load balance functioned.
4- Enabled Captive Portal (LAN Interface / Enable logout popup window / Authentication: Local user manager)
5- Create a test users in user manager.
6- I tried to access the internet in this moment but wasnt possible so i access http://192.168.1.1:8000 and enter the user and password test and the internet functioned.
7- Test the download speed again and it was around 147 KB/s. I monitored the traffic in WAN and OPT1 and the load balance functioned.
9- I tried to access the internet again and it wasnt possible.
So, if i understood your doubt i think it helps you.
