Route a website to an to WAN IP



  • i have a fiber link from IPS 1 that is not allowing me access to a particular site mailchimp.com… we spoke to them & apparently they need to pay some money before getting access that particular IP. Now i have a backup link from another ISP that allows me access to the mailchimp site. unfortunately it's through VSAT, so the latency becomes an issue. What i need to do is to merge both links in such a way that any request to mailchimp should be routed automatically to the VSAT link. Can someone help please?

    I'm not really sure what you mean by that. You want help to set up pfsense with 2 WAN connections on 2 ISPs, and route all traffic to mailchimp.com over the second WAN? If so, that's a fairly straightforward multi-wan setup, which is documented. If you have specific problems or questions with it we can attempt to assist.

  • Thanks for your response, I went through the doc but i could not find anything. The only thing i was able to do is to forward PCs that are to access mailchimp to WAN2. and those PCs cannot access WAN 1. What i want to do is to forward all traffic to mailchimp to the WAN 2



  • The first pass rule on your LAN should look something like this:

    Proto  Source  Port  Destination  Port  Gateway
    TCP      *          *    mailchimp.com  80      WAN2

    That will route all http traffic from any host on your LAN to mailchimp.com through your WAN2 gateway. You could use Proto:Any  DestinationPort:any if you want to route all traffic and not just http to mailchimp.com.  Note also that you will have to define an IP address or range for mailchimp.com, either in the rule itself or on the alias page.



  • but when it comes to downloading things from rapidshare.com , there'll be a huge list of IPs to deal with  ???
