  • Shud I enable this feature for load balancing outgoing traffic ???

    Configuration is like in WIKI manual. http://wiki.pfsense.com/wikka.php?wakka=OutgoingLoadBalancing

    ISP_2------router_2 (static IP_2 192.168.2.1/24)---------+pfsense -----router_4 (access controler)----users
    ISP_3------router_3 (static IP_3 192.168.3.1/24)---------+

    pfsense config

    LAN - 192.168.1.1/24
    WAN_1 (connected to router_1) - IP 192.168.0.2/24 static  GW=ROUTER_1 (IP address)
    WAN_2 (connected to router_2) - IP 192.168.2.2/24 static  GW=ROUTER_2 (IP address)
    WAN_3 (connected to router_3) - IP 192.168.3.2/24 static  GW=ROUTER_3 (IP address)



  • No. Carp Loadbalancing is for sharing the load between different firewall-machines in a cluster, not for sharing the load to different WAN-gateways.
