Single Lan - Multi Wan routing question
I have been trolling the forum looking for a possible soluotion but thus far have been unable to find, so hoping someone can point me in the correct direction. What I am trying to achieve sounds trivial in relation to setting it up, for me at least.
What is have is a pfsense 2.0 box with 3 interfaces, 1 lan and 2 wan interfaces, both wan has static ip's.
I have it set up at the moment that all LAN traffic goes out via the default route, what I want to achieve is to have a sub set of the lan to go out via the second wan connection.
192.168.0.0/24 <> via default
192.168.0.100-192.168.0.110 <> via wan2
is this set up possible? I do not require fail-over or any load balancing at this stage…. this is purely for my development network and just need to split the traffic.

sure. You can specify a gateway for each firewall rule.
create an alias for the address' you wish to send to the secondary wan and give it some name.
then create a new firewall rule in the LAN tab, above the default rule.
it should be similar to the default rule that is allready there with 2 differences:
I have done this but I am still going out via default route.
created an alias with relevent lan addresses and named it under firewall>aliases
created a firewall rule under firewall>lan and duplicated the defalut rule and changed the source to the named alias and gateway to the secind wan connection
However when i go to whatsmyip i still see the default wan ip address. is there anything else i need to do?

did you reset states ?
Resetting states is sometimes needed when making adjustments to the rules
also: you can experiment with the order (move one above the other). But as far as i know the default rule should be at the bottom, the one going to GW2 should be above default rule.
Sorry for replying so late, was unable to get on to the forum for all of yesterday.
I have reset states as well as moved the rules around and still no luck.
attached screen captures of the rules and associated aspects.
