2 Lans - 2 Wans



  • Hi,
    I'm kind of familiar with a regular setup with pfSense but  I need to setup another box and was wondering if any special rules needs to be created for my second lan. Basically this is the setup.

    I have 4 NIC on the box

    Wan  PPOe ISP with static ip
    Wan 2(opt1) Cable modem ISP with static ip

    Lan  192.168.100.0/24 Windows Domain
    Lan 2 (opt2) 192.168.201.0/24 Windows Domain

    No DMZ.

    Domain on LAN 2 will be able to access some services on LAN 1 but not all and vice versa. This is basically a matter of rules between the 2 LANs right?

    Questions:
    Do I need to make a special rule for the second LAN to be NATed to either Wans or just by specifying the gateway, the NATin occurs?

    Is it possible to make a Load Balancing setup for both LANs and/or assign specific protocol to specific wans.

    Thanks in advance

    Davis

    The NAT automatically occurs if you specify a gateway on the config page of the OPT.
    This is the reason your normal LANs shouldn't have a gateway set on the config page.
    In the firewall rule you can select either the "default gateway" (uses the routing table on the pfSense), a gateway directly (forces traffic to this gateway), or a loadbalancing/failover pool (sends the traffic to the gateway defined by the pool).

    Yes and yes.
