Dual Wan both pppoe adsl connctions.



  • Does pfsense support 2 pppoe connections at once ?

    Also would it support using diffrent logins (Both connections are from different isp's)



  • Not at this moment. (Will be changed in a future version i believe)
    You need in front of your second WAN a dumb router that does the autentification for you.

    It would look like this:

    
    ISP-Link----------PPPOE-router----OPT1
                                         pfSense LAN ----- clients/server
    ISP-Link--------------------------------WAN

    Thanks, I will just wait for a future version. The problem ive noticed with most routers is that I run out of connections when running bit torrent and lose internet connectivity.



  • :o
    What kind of router?
    I have as PPPoE-modem-router a Zyxel 650ME and a pfSense behind it.

    I've used heavy bittorrent (5 users each with 2000+ connections) and NEVER lost connectivity.
    I just had to increase the state-table in pfSense to a bit more than 10000.



  • Ive tryed a few diffrent linksys's including a wrt54g running dd-wrt with max connections cranked to 4096, Right now im running a P3 1GHZ with 768MB of ram running ipcop its great but can't load balance.



  • Get a modem tat supports the so called "half-bridged mode". You will enter the pppoe credentials at the modem and the modem will then hand out the public IP via dhcp to the pfsense behind it. It won't do double nat or firewalling so it usually is more stable than the routers that you are talking of.
