Prolem w/ Load balancing + CARP - one connection active



  • Dear pfSense gurus,

    I've been trying to set up a load balancing + CARP setup.
    The CARP side of the setup works flawlessly, but I'm having trouble with the load balancing.

    I've attached the scheme of the network to help clarify the big picture.

    Currently I have internet access, but all traffic, with the exception of traffic I specifically forward
    through the ADSL interface is going through the cable connection.

    It looks like I'm missing something… I've spent 2 weeks trying to figure it out... with no success...
    I'd be more than grateful if you could help me out with this...

    The config

    Networks
    LAN - 10.0.0.0/8
    WAN - 192.168.2.0/24 (Connected to a 3/0.5Mbps cable)
    WANDSL - 192.168.1.0/24 (Connected to a 5/0.25Mbps ADSL)

    Interfaces
    LAN - 10.0.0.254
    WAN - 192.168.2.1
    WANDSL - 192.168.1.1

    CARP settings
    LAN VIP - 10.0.10.10 (Used as the gateway by all workstations in LAN)
    WAN VIP - 192.168.2.10
    WANDSL VIP - 192.168.1.10

    Firewall settings
    LAN: allow outgoing from all through "balanced".
    WAN: allow from all to all
    WANDSL: allow from all to all

    NAT settings - I suspect that the problem is here…
    WANDSL    any  *  *  *  192.168.1.10  *  NO  Auto created rule for LAN
    WAN                any    *      *      *      192.168.2.10    *      NO  Auto created rule for LAN
    WAN                any    *      *      *  *            *      NO  Auto created rule for LAN
    WANDSL    any  *  *  *        *                *    NO  Auto created rule for LAN

    Load balancing settings
    balanced  gateway  192.168.1.1 <testip1>  Load balanced outgoing gateway
                                              192.168.2.1 <testip2>failed to attach a diagram… (Upload folder is full)</testip2></testip1>
