    Create a loadbalancer-
    Name: "LBW1W2"
    Type: Gateway
    Behaviour: Load Balancer
    Monitor IP (other) 8.8.8.8, Interface Name: WAN.  Click add to pool
    Monitor IP (other) 8.8.4.4, Interface Name: WAN2. Click add to pool

    Now you should have a load balancer called LBW1W2 which pings Google's DNS servers to test connectivity.

    Check it is working by looking at Status -> Load Balancer.  It should have two green entries.

    Firewall -> Rules, LAN interface.  Create a rule similar to this:

    From 192.168.1.0/24 to any port 80 and select the name of the new balancer from the Gateway drop down list.

    Make sure that the rule is not "shadowed" by another rule above it that grants similar access but with a different gateway.

    Once you have got a basic setup working, then you can do things like create an alias list of ports to pass through the load balancer/failover links.

    I recommend not putting https or ssh over a load balancer.  Use a failover instead for this sort of protocol.

  • ok i will try this and feedback you



  • not work



  • The new rule you just made in the firewall, must be placed ABOVE the rule that already exists there. (The Allow Default rule).
    Otherwise, the default rule will intercept everything before it reaches the new rule.



  • How about like this try this

    LoadBalancer Alias: LB
    Behaviour: LoadBalancing
    Monitor:ICMP

    Monitor IP: WAN1 router IP address(Not your pfsense wan address,but the router by the ISP)
    Interface Name: WAN1
    ADD TO POOL

    Monitor IP: WAN2 router IP address(Not your pfsense OPT address,but the router by the ISP)
    Interface Name: WAN1
    ADD TO POOL

    Be sure no squid package is installed cause squid does not support on Multi-WAN on this version. you have to separate it.



  • the 8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8 will work maybe you should put a static route which interfaces will be used to go in 8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8  :)
