A very basic question



  • hi guys!

    I am trying to setup some static routes in a pfsense 1.2.3-RELEASE  box.
    To add a static route i have to fill these..

    interface
    destination network
    gateway
    description

    As I understand, routes are system wide and not interface-specific (at least in linux, and Cisco routers).
    i know it could be possible to send all the traffic to a specific interface, but this is not always the desire
    config.
    What is the interface field for? I can't understand the "Choose which interface this route applies to"
    tag…

    TIA

    after searching a lot!

    Static Routes:
    The dropdown for the interface defines on which interface the gateway for the remote subnet is reachable.
    NOT that on the selected interface is the static route applied on inbound traffic.
