Openvpn Multi-Wan failover

  • I have a Multi-Wan setup and was wondering about OpenVPN failover. If my WAN interface goes down the OpenVPN link to my remote site does as well. I tried setting up policy routes and a failover configuration but it seems that policy routes do not effect the pfsense server itself. What is the best way to handle failover?

  • Why don't you put all the addresses of your pfSenses (the main and the failover backup) into the configuration of your clients? Then the client would just try to connect one server after the other until it works. You can even tell the client to randomly choose an IP to connect (which would more look like loadbalancing).
