I've got a question about multiple wan with more than two WAN.
Imagine you've got 5 modem acting as routers in the 192.168.0.x range (modem 1 192.168.0.1 modem 2 192.168.0.2 etc)
then you have an interface on pfSense using 192.168.0.254 for example.
Is it possible using outgoing loadbalancer to make a gateway pool that contains each modem as a pool entry and doing sort of round robin or something else against those routers ? (for outgoing loadbalancing only)
If not, is there a way to perform something similar using pfsense… ??
the fact is that I can't add enough interfaces...
Unfortunately you have to have each modem at a seperate interface. However you can make this work with only one physical interface by setting up VLANs and a VLAN-switch that connects to the modems as each VLAN will be visible as a seperate interface.
faster than myself, I was editing the post to tell you that I'm a bad guy that need to learn how to read posts more accurately….
the solution using vlan has already been posted....i'm bad !! definitively.
So the solution is this one :
1 nic, 5 vlans between pfSense and the switch. On the switch I make an association of two ports (one using the vlan number from the pfSense, the other one without vlan tagging because providers'modem don't support it) and I'm done !!
Thanks a lot!!!
This place seems full of smart people :-D
You got the idea :D
