Big problem with basic Multi WAN functions - 2.1



  • When i reboot the modem for WAN2 (non-default-gateway) this gateway never returns online
    even when the underlying PPPoE connection is up and running again with a new IP.

    No such issue on WAN1 (default)

    i have 2x PPPoE identical WANs set up for load balancing

    • each has different DNS IP's
    • each has a different Google IP for monitoring, ISP assigns same gateway to both WANs and pfsense doesn't like this.

    Log attached. Hopefully this can be fixed before 2.1 is out, it's a deal breaker.
    It's reproducible every time.

    UPDATE:
    i've done this many times, most times wan2 gateway remains down,
    sometimes it returns but DynDNS doesn't update the new IP whereas
    when wan2 gateway is down DynDNS always updates.

    UPDATE:
    under 2.0.3 gateway returns
    when WAN2 PPPoE is back up pf says "Gateway status could not be determined considering all up"

    UPDATE:
    same things happens when i reboot pfsense,
    WAN2 is sometimes erroneously marked as down

  • Does it persist when you restart the apinger service?



  • @timthetortoise:

    Does it persist when you restart the apinger service?

    no, restarting apinger fixes it right away



  • can someone help me with this?
    this issue makes 2.1 completely unusable

    i think this happens because both PPPoEs get the same gateway IP from the server, but that is common
