Simple multi wan set up



  • Hi Folks
    From a single wan setup we intend to move to a dual wan set up and the brief set up is as follows:

    1. WAN1 : Gives us a static public IP
    2. Opt 1 : Gives us a  DHCP IP

    I want to set up a simple fail over /Load balance
    Is there a simple step by step tutorial available

    Regards

    Kumar



  • SYSTEM -> Rounting
    Create a Group with WAN and OPT1, both Tier 1

    Select this Gatewaygroup as gateway in your firewall rules on LAN interface.

    That's all.

    Same Tier: Doing Loadbalancing if both are up and failover if one GW is down.



  • Hi
    Didn't quite work out that way. Unable to figure out what mistake I have made.
    I get a public ip in the range (DHCP)123.x.y.z on NIC1(rl0) and the second ISP gives a static
    in the range 122.a.b.c. This is I add as OPT1. My LAN is taken as rl1. The ip start is 192.l.m.n
    and has 30 machines to it. There is also a DNS server in the LAN.
    The Pf sense box runs a DHCP server and doles out local dynamic IPs.

    Now what happens is that the moment I connect the second ISP we lose
    connectivity with NET.
    ShouId I post the logs? If so which logs will be useful?

    Regards

  • Have you checked your config against the HOWTO?

  • Yes I did that and my trouble is that at any point of time  am able to get only 1 wan up and running.



  • Thank you Nachtfalke
    Got it to work. Had overlooked the firewall rule to have the named gateway
    ;D
