Newbie question on Multi-WAN and Forced Routing

  • Hello,

    I am new to pfSense…I have been reading the Multi-WAN docs but can't find/get it to do what I want to do.  So here goes...

    Two WAN connections.  1 DSL and 1 Point-to-Point Wireless both PPPoE.

    I want to route the VoIP traffic only (IAX2 UDP Port 4569) on the P2P WAN and everything else on the DSL WAN.

    The Asterisk server is a static IP on the LAN.

    Thanks for reading!  Any help/hints greatly appreciated.

  • might want to start by explaining what you tried and what it does not not do exactly.

    also include some screenshots of your LAN fw rules.

  • Here is an example where I am telling one server to go out another gateway (WAN2 in my case) for all connections.  You can do this by port also.  Same thing:  Port X goes out gateway Y.  Profit.

  • WAN = DSL for all traffic except VoIP
    OPT1 = P2P for only VoIP

    1)  I have OPT1 port forwarding 4569 to  This handles the incoming VoIP traffic and this seems to be working.

    2)  Tried creating a firewall rule to Block LAN source Destination: WAN    This only seems to work if the destination is any.  I don't understand the difference between WANnet and WANaddress and why these destination don't block with this rule.

    Thank you!  You screenshot was very helpful.  I was missing the Gateway in the FW Rule.  :)
