Need comments on this setup.



  • My current setup which I dunno why network randomly timeouts. Also need help if anyone could point out a way to trace the reason of network timeouts.

    Even tried doing a ping from pfsene-box to some dns, and get always get a random timeouts.

    This is my initial setup before adding more gateways which I wonder why timeouts occured.

    [LAN(192.168.1.0/24)] –- [switch] –- [<rl0>pfsense<rl1>] –- [switch] –-[(192.168.2.1;192.168.1.1)gw1]

    ========================================================================================

    Additional info:
    Also, my current plan is this setup:

    ========================================================================================

    / –-- [(192.168.2.1;192.168.1.1)gw1]
                                                                                                          /
    [LAN(192.168.1.0/24)] –- [switch] –- [<rl0>pfsense<rl1>] –- [switch] –- | ---- [(192.168.2.2;192.168.1.2)gw2]
                                                                                                         
                                                                                                            \ –-- [(192.168.2.3;192.168.1.3)gw3]

    ========================================================================================

    *** rl0 have ips, (192.168.1.1;192.168.1.2;192.168.1.3) aliased.
    *** rl1 have ip, (192.168.2.254/24)
    **  gateways each have dual ips (aliased too), kept it there in case pfsense failed, I could just easily remove pfsense box to get it working again.
    *    Does it ring a problem? A LAN inside a LAN.

    Thanks.</rl1></rl0></rl1></rl0>
