Multi Internet Connection



  • i was looking for something like we have two internet connection One is 2 MB for our web server and another is 1 MB for our employee in the company. Now question is like how I will setup that through firewall. And I also want to setup in such a way that either of Internet connection goes down than it should switch automatically for web server.

    My setup should be like this 2 Internet Connection, 1 Lan, 1 DMZ. On DMZ i will put Websever, Database Server and Email Server which will be routed by pfSense from Internet Connection to DMZ.

    Please somebody help me on this. I am new to pfSense but I am very good at Smoothwall Firewall but there is no concept of 2 Internet Connection with fail over method



  • This is possible by using a failover group in the DMZ firewall rules. The hard part will be making sure DNS gets updated if the main connection goes down. You will need to have a dynamic DNS client on the web server or some computer in the DMZ. When the connection switches to the backup connection, clients will still be trying to connect to the primary connection's IP address without dynamic DNS.
