Dual WAN, Voip, and Failover

  • Hello,

    I am running 2.0-RC3 (i386) with no problems. Currently I have one WAN connection hooked up. The server has 4 interfaces, and I am only using two one for LAN and one for WAN.

    I have a new DSL line to connect. Also we have new VOIP phones.

    Here is what I need help with:

    1. Adding the second WAN link
    2. Setup all traffic destined for my VOIP providers IP address to route out the DSL line (it is dedicated bandwidth vs the cable modem)
    3. Setup the best kind of QOS for this
    4. Ideally if either of the WAN links fail, send traffic over the other link until service is restored at which point it switches back.

    I am very seasoned on pfsense but new to the above items. Possible, crazy talk, etc ? Thanks!

  • Create the second wan at Pfsense.
    Assign ip/gateway at gui.
    Create two failover like wan-> wan2 and wan2 -> wan
    Assing gateway to your rules.
