Pfsense features



  • Hi Guys,

    I am planning to deply pfsence as our firewall/router on the network.
    We have 3 internet DSL/cable connections and one lan connection.

    What i Want to know is

    1. Is it possible to use multiple out bound connections ? to be exact 3 dsl modem connections

    2. Is it possible to do source routing ? ie we want to control the out bound traffic.
        say ftp traffic  through one  outbound interface and all traffic from one lan machine is trough another    outbound interface?

    3. Is it possible to use wireless laptops attached to wireless netgear router inside the lan

    Thanks

  • @lhrt:

    Yes, see the the Routing and Dual Wan section of this forum and
    http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/MultiWanVersion1.2

    1. Is it possible to do source routing ? ie we want to control the out bound traffic.

    Yes. This is policy based routing. Search the forums for this. Basically you just make a firewall rule and specify which gateway the packet should be sent out on.

    1. Is it possible to use wireless laptops attached to wireless netgear router inside the lan

    Just connect the Netgear router to a port on the pfSense machine. You can have the access point in bridge mode or you can have it NAT.
    Thanks

  • Thanks guys.
    I figured out the problem. It was a bad qos rule that stops the packets. No problem with the Realtek card.

    Thanks once more
