Esxi+pfsense+ip+failover+from+ovh+wan



  • hello,

    I have esxi 4 and i have create a pfsense vm.

    the ip of esxi is 94.X.X.228 and the gateway is 94.X.X.254

    I have a ip failover from ovh  178.X.X.207 and the gateway is 94.X.X.254

    I have add a route as 94.X.X.254/32 178.X.X.207

    I have dns 213.186.33.99

    but when I try to ping gateway I have time to live exceeded…
    when I try to ping www.google.be I have dns resolution failure...

    Have you a idea?

    What physical NIC's have you presented to the VM's?



  • e1000

    I have one nic connected to internet and the other connected for the lan

    You have to show us pictures of the config for the VM (Nic and Virtual switch) and the config of LAN, NIC and rules on the PFSense.



  • the nic for wan is connected to the vswitch0 (94.X.X.228, gateway 94.X.X.25)
    the nic for lan is connected to the vswitch1 ( not connected )

    And now you have an idea of why you cannot connect to the PFsense <;)

    @nmy:

    the nic for wan is connected to the vswitch0 (94.X.X.228, gateway 94.X.X.25)
    the nic for lan is connected to the vswitch1 ( not connected )



  • the interface wan is connected to the vswitch0 …..

    no I don't see while...

    You dont use LAN at all???Since its not connected??



  • I'm having the same problem. So far it looks like pfsense cant have a default gateway out side its wan subnet. if you look in Diagnostics, Routes? Let me know if you have a default gateway.  I don't have one listed.

    my OVH RIPE IP Failover setup (doesn't work)
    188.165.0.144/28

    WAN
    IP 188.165.0.145
    Subnet 255.255.255.240
    Gateway 94.24.165.164

    LAN
    IP 192.168.0.1
    Sub 255.255.255.0

    If i change the WAN gateway to 188.165.0.159 it works but this is a NO NO.. OVH will ban your Block. But in the route tables now i have a default gateway.

    And the funny thing is Windows boxes dont have a problem with the WAN configs above

    Anyone get a fix?

    fyi i have tried Untangle and smoothwall same results :(
