Multi WAN browsing redirection issues



  • Hi,

    I have configured a multi WAN setup i.e. WAN, WAN1, and WAN2, but some of the sites that users are trying to access gets redirected to google.com, is there a way to resolve this? BTW I'm using google's public DNS and I have DNS blacklist installed if that matters.

    TIA



  • Additional information:

    Pinging by pfSense's gui resolves to the correct ip address but when done on the workstation, it returns an ip address that does not belong.



  • Try to use another DNS server
    208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 are from openDNS.

    It appears that DNS forwarder is the one causing the issue, if DNS forwarder is enabled and whether I'm on multi WAN or not, the issue is there but when I disabled DNS forwarder I don't have issues.

    The drawback to this is that I have to manually configure all servers and workstations DNS entries and individually add the dns servers 208.67.222.222. This is weird because this is the first time I've experienced this, any suggestions?



  • I doubt that the problem lies with the DNS forwarder itself.
    The DNS forwarder just forwards DNS requests to the DNS-server you configured.
    What DNS-server did you configure for the pfSense?
    Did you check the box "Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN".

    Yes, DNS forwarder is just forwarding DNS requests but like I've mentioned previously something weird is happening. I've already tried a number of DNS servers already i.e. ISP's DNS, OpenDNS, Google's DNS, the result is the same, also unchecking/checking "Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN" did not help.
