Help: how to force certain sites to specific gateway
how can i let Lan clients use a specific gateway if they access a site like youtube?
Im using 2.0.1 64bit
multi-wan with loadbalancing 3 wan
what i did is made a firewall rule to Lan
ang made alias on all ip of youtube as destination.
and gateway to wan1 only.
would this work?or do i have to add another floating rule
or Nat rule?nthanks..
As far as I know, you wont be able to route " specific " sites..example..
routing google.com out WAN 1
routing youtube.com out WAN 2
at least as far as I know, please correct me if this is incorrect.. :-\
You can say have…all Secure traffic out 1 and regular out the other
route all HTTPS traffic via 443 ---> WAN 1
route all HTTP traffic via 80 ----> WAN 2
... Not really sure what your plan is or why you want/need it that way... My suggestion to you is to take a gateway group, Tier 1 both wans , set it for packet and latency and route all outgoing traffic on the multiwan gateway, not only does this give you lb but redundant connection now ..
**Note if both your WAN Connections are on the same gateway , you will need to put another router inbetween 1 wan connection to NAT a new gateway address like say 10.10.10.10
thanks for the reply. My reason doing this is because i have a limited bandwidth. i dont want to put them on tier 1 because it will eat up all my bandwidth. i just want WAN1 to handle youtube.
sites would not work …
what you could do is find out all the IP's youtube uses; create 1 alias for that set of ip's.
then create a firewall rule any-->alias with gateway WAN1
