Unable to ping gateway on WAN2 from LAN

  • Here is a little issue I noticed and I am trying to figure out the best way to address it:


    Using simple NAT setup.

    From the lan, I can ping WAN no problem. WAN2 NAT works inbound and if I create new LAN outbound rules and Outbound NAT rules it works but I cannot ping the WAN2 router (sitting above pfSense) from a LAN address or access the routers SSH from a LAN address. If I create a seperate rule for the LAN IP to go out the WAN2 gateway, then it works. Shouldn't the LAN address be able to ping both WAN interfaces regardless?

    Is this something a static route would address?

    I will continue to test and post results but if anyone has any thoughts, they would be appreciated.
