Dual WAn / load balance not working.



  • Thank you in advance for any and all help….

    I will try to explain my situation.

    I was running 1.2.3 with dual wan / loadballancing and failover without any problems.

    I have just installed
    2.0-BETA4 (i386)
    built on Sun Aug 22 06:39:51 EDT 2010
    FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE

    LAN with Static ip 192.168.1.1
    WAN with static ip 192.168.0.1 and gateway 192.168.0.254
    OPT1 with static ip 192.168.2.1 and gateway 192.168.2.254

    lan is connected to 8 port switch ----> pc's
    WAN is connected directly to DSL modem (static ip 192.168.0.254)
    OPT1 is connected directly to DSL modem (static ip 192.168.2.254)

    I have also created Gateways"
    Name          Interface    Gateway            Monitor IP            Description

    BackupADSL  OPT1          192.168.2.254    192.168.2.254      Backup     
    MainADSL    WAN            192.168.0.254    192.168.0.254      Main ADSL

    Gateway Groups
    Group Name                          Gateways                      Priority                        Description 
    LoadBalancer                        BACKUPADSL                  Tier 1
                                              MAINADSL                    Tier 1                          LoadBalancer

    My issue is ALL trafic is going through the WAN/Main ADSL

    I can ping both modems from the PFSENSE ping command but have obviously missed something to make it load balance.

    Any helpwill be appreciated.





  • Plz share…



  • It was so simple….

    I had forgot to change the gateway to "LoadBalancer" in my instance

    In the firewall - rules - LAN

    ID  Proto    Source          Port  Destination      Port      Gateway          Queue    Schedule  Description

    *      LAN net          *          *                *      LoadBalancer                      none    Default allow LAN to any rule (LOADBALANCE AND FAILO

    I hope this helps



  • Thanks!

    That was just the little piece I missed all the time to finally get the loadbalancer working  :D

    Best regards,

    Chris
