5 IP Load Balance



  • Okay here's the situation:

    We have one T1 connection.  We have 5 static IP's, each of them with 1.5Mbit up/down dedicated.  I know it sounds weird, but that's the way it is.

    Can I Load Balance (ala http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Multi-Wan/Load-Balancing) using only one NIC?  Since all the internet comes from the same place, opposed to different connections, all 5 IP's can be obtained through one ethernet cable.



  • Loadbalancing requires you ta have unique gateways on seperate links. It won't work this way in your scenario. What you could try is adding the adiitional IPs as virtual IPs and using advanced outbound NAT to map different hosts/subnetparts to different virtual IPs. This way when using multiple clients you can use all IPs though each client/subnetpart won't be able to use more than the 1.5 mbit/s. Not really a solution for the original problem but better than running with one IP only.



  • Okay, that's sort of what I was thinking if I couldn't figure out a way for it to do so intelligently



  • Hey, just wanted to send an update about this on my end.  On two dsl's with the same gateway at the ISP, I've added routers in front of it to make it think it works.  No dns problems as of yet, everything seems to be working well

    This is doable in pf, but unfortunately we don't provide an interface into this configuration at this time.
