Loadbalance firewalls?



  • Hello, I've currently got two pfsense firewalls doing master/slave carp failover with dual wan working perfectly fine.  My firewalls are behind a hardware loadbalancer that supports loadbalancing firewalls.  I was wondering if it's possible to do actual loadbalanced firewalls with pfsense?

    Anyone have any ideas?



  • What do you define as loadbalancing?
    pfSense can do Roundrobin balancing so not a "add the bandwiths of both WAN's together" but more a "spread the connections to both WAN's"

    What do you mean with: "My firewalls are behind a hardware loadbalancer that supports loadbalancing firewalls."
    Could you elaborate on that?
