MultiWAN / dual PPPoE pfSense

  • Would somebody know if a double PPPoE/double WAN configuration (both in the same gateway group, for failover for example) work on the newer snapshots?

    Does anybody know, or have such a setup working?

    Thank you,

    It should, as long as both links have different gateways.

    On recent snapshots (past week and a half or so) dynamic gateways in gateway groups work properly. Before then, there were many problems.

  • Thank you.  I've been playing with April 30th version, and although I can define with firewall rules which gateway to use (or gateway group), I cannot chooe a gateway group as a default gateway.

    Is this normal or am I misunderstanding ? How do I pick a gateway group as a default gateway? (or is april 30th version one of the problematic ones?)

    April 30th is probably not a good version to use. Use at least May 4-5, or the past few days preferably, even more changes went in.

    You do not set a group as default, that isn't how it works.

    You edit your LAN rules, and pick the gateway group there for the gateway setting. That is what directs traffic to the gateway group for use.

  • Thank you. Thats what I ended up doing, but I was wondering if there was a way to use a gateway group as default gateway to bypass using firewall rules for that.
