PFSense Ipsec failover: newbie needs help
budhapalm last edited by
I have installed pFsense on 2 ALIX box, both with 3 ethernet ports (LAN,WAN,OPT1). I will have 2 active internet connections on each of the pFsense box, one for active internet/vpn the other for failover.
Each of the ALIX box will have an ADSL connection with a static IP, failover will have PPoE with static IP (can I use PPoE?) if not this can always change to a cable static IP.
- LAN -
( Internet )
- LAN -
I have searched the threads on this forum, and have looked at the guides available on this site but still have not come with a detail setup guide. If anyone has a similar setup or any insight on this setup, please give me a brief tutorial on where to start.
Thanks in advance.

PPPoE will only work on the original WAN interface, not on OPTs. If you have the option to get static IPs there I would rather use that instead of PPPoE.
IPSEC-failover is not possible.
For normal traffic just create a failoverpool at services>loadbalancer, type failover and enter the gateways in the order you want them to be used. Then reference this pool in your firewallrules.
