DualWAN + VPN or Proxy or Tunnel



  • Hi All,

    I have a dual WAN setup on my VPN. I have 2 accounts from the same provider to get a bigger pipe. I know it's not aggregated bandwidth but it helps.

    The issue I now have is the that the quality of the routing isnt always the best from the ISP so I want to pipe it through my VPS.

    Basic Picture below:

    –- WAN 1 ---
                                  /                   
    My PC -> PFSense --                          --- Internet connection --- My VPS (OpenVPN or Proxy or whatever) ---> Internet
                                  \                      /
                                    --- WAN 2 ---

    What should I install on the VPS (linux can be debian/CentOS/etc) to make this work.

    I tried installing openVPN on the VPS and on my PC but it doesnt pipe ALL traffic from my PC and I also want other PCs to use that setup without having to install openvpn client on them.

    Thanks



  • Not yet, at least not with pfSense. I got it working just fine using another router OS… still would go back to pfSense in an instant if they decided to add this feature.



  • Striker have you been doing VPN bonding with ZS for a long time? How has is worked for you?

    I've been doing it for like a week or so. In comparison to load balancing bandwidth gets reduced by round about 15%, which is because of OpenVPN's overhead I assume…  :-
    But apart from that, everything works out pretty well. Websites which require log-ins and check for the IP addresses used to log me out automatically while using simple load balancing. Yeah, I don't have that problem anymore.
