Alix 2d3 Load Balancer OPT1 interface

  • Hi All,

    I have setup up an Alix 2d3 board to run Pfsense ver 2.1. I can connnect to the router via the LAN address. I would like to  set up the router as a Load Balancer, so I nedd to be able to use the OPT1 interface as the second WAN. I am  not seeing the OPT1 interface being repotted under interfaces. How do I enable the OPT1 interface to use as a second WAN?

  • Hey Cenriq,

    Click on "Interfaces | (assign)".  Hit the "+" sign at the bottom and it should add the vr2 (DMZ) interface.  Let us know if you have any further questions.


  • Hey Juiceman,

    Thanks for the response. I had at one point hit  "assign" before but I did not see the "+" at the bottom to add an Interface. Thanks again for pointing that out.

    Now let me see if I gan get the Load Balancing to work.


  • Hi All,

    I am just getting back to this router and just realized that I can no longer connect to the router. I am not getting an IP addtress. I am using the web interface. I don't have a serila cable to se what/s going on. This proble only started since I enabled the second WAN ro configured  Load Balancing. Any ideas what could have happened? TIA.
