Multi-WAN for multiple services



  • Thanks in advance for help on this question…

    I tried setting up multiple WAN IPs with the same gateway and no go...  Anywho, here is what I am trying to do, because I don't know any other way to do it.

    I have 5 static IPs from my internet provider.  Right now, I am running a web server on one, some FTP and email on another and 3 minecraft servers.  And I need more room.

    I set up pfSense with the intention of having it 'control' all 5 IPs and just forward to the correct internal IP based on the port...  so I could effectively have  unlimited minecraft servers on 1 IP as long as the ports were different.

    Can pfSense not do this with multiple IPs?

    Edit: Or do I need to set up a separate copy of pfSense for each IP?  I am running all this under ESXi...



  • Yes, that's pretty trivial.  You need to add one to the interface and the other 4 as virtual IPs.
