Routing outbound traffic via secondary WAN

  • Hi guys

    I'm running 2.0RC1 and I have a multi-WAN set up, as follows: one fixed IP via BeThere and another via BT which uses PPPoE with a range of fixed IP addresses.
    I've set up Virtual IPs using Proxy ARP for the BT range of addresses.

    What I'd like to do is this:

    All HTTP and SSH traffic from the LAN to go out via one of the fixed IP addresses on the BT connection.
    All other traffic routed through the BeThere fixed IP connection.

    I can't see a way to do this; if I set BT as my primary gateway, I can set up outbound NAT so that this traffic goes via one of my fixed IPs; however, I can't then set up other traffic to go through the other connection.

    If I set up an outbound NAT rule to use the other connection, traffic is being lost and apparently not coming back.

    Am I missing something? Is this possible with pfSense 2.0RC1?


  • Figured it out now; I had to add a LAN rule for traffic types and select which gateway to use :)

    I love policy-based routing…
