Load Balance on multipe IP on single wan



  • I need to migrate one old bsd routers to pfsense

    My ISP is providing 5ips static thru one fiber connections.

    How can i get all 5ips on one wan interface.

    and finally enable the loadbalance as per the instruction on pfsense wiki.

    these are how my old routers handle round robin loadbalance.

    keyrate="fast"
    saver="blank"
    usbd_enable="YES"
    sshd_enable="YES"
    snmpd_enable="YES"
    ipnat_enable="NO"
    inetd_enable="YES"
    mpd_enable="YES"
    sendmail_enable="NONE"
    inetd_flags="-wW -C 60 -a 127.0.0.1"
    gateway_enable="YES"
    ifconfig_fxp2="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.xxx polling up"
    ifconfig_fxp2_alias0="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.255"
    ifconfig_fxp2_alias0="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.255"
    ifconfig_fxp2_alias0="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.255" (These continues to about 5 ext ips

    ourip="{xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,continues 35 ips}"
    pool1="{xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,continues 1 ips}"
    pool2="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"



  • I'd be real interested to see a response on this one.  I'm getting a new setup where my ISP will be providing five static IPs on a single cable connection.  If there's a way to support all five IPs on a single WAN port, that'd be ideal.



  • You can provide multiple IPs on a single WAN port, that's what virtual IPs are for. You just can't do this kind of loadbalancing if I got the original config of akmis right..



  • Well you can do it with nat.
    I do not recall if you can enter aliases on the nat part but if you can than that's the way to do it.
    Though failover is not going to work or i do not know if it makes sense here.
