Inbound load balancing question

  • I want to use one pfSense 2 box in front of two web servers as a failover system.  I do NOT want load balancing since the web application does not support shared session data (yet).  For now it would be good enough if both web servers are running, using a shared database server, and pfSense sends all traffic to one host.  If that host fails I want pfSense to send all traffic to the other host.  Therefore, no load balancing, just failover.  Is this possible in pfSense?  I have read the inbound load balancing documents but I cannot see from that whether one can make this work without the load balancing part and just the failover part?

  • yes it's possible

  • Thanks.  Any pointers to documentation for setting this up?  If not I'll try to figure it out…
