Outgoing load balancing problem



  • i have two Wan for one Lan

    I used the recommendations for load balancing under pfsense 2.0 RC3, ie do nothing but
    (i) define a group for both gateways under system => routing => groups,
    (ii) change the rule from LAN to Gateway under firewall => rules => lan so it uses the gateway group,
    (iii) enable both checkboxes under System => advanced => misc for "Use sticky connections" and "Allow default gateway switching", and
    (iv) I have also installed lusca-cache package.

    My Load and Balancing is not working only use one gateway that I make default.
    Please help my why its not working.

    Thanks in advance.





  • Can you ping an internet IP address such as 208.67.222.222 (opendns server) through the WAN connection that is Not default? If so, the dns resolution is not working and it is likely the same problem as I just posted here: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,43982.0.html



  • Using Squid would be my guess, that's not adequate for Squid.

    On another note, remove the gateway from both of your first two rules. You want them there to avoid the policy routing, but you do not want the gateway there, that'll break connectivity to directly connected hosts on that subnet.
