Multi-Wan - Secondary WAN Gateway is reported Offline

  • Hello,
    We have configured Multi-Wan on our Network and our primary internet source is working fine. But when we add our secondary internet source, it is being reported by the system that the gateway is offline. I can't even ping the Gateway IP inside our LAN. Please refer to the attached screenshot for more details on what I did. I don't know if I still missed something on my config. Please assist.

  • Is "Cisco_VPN" allowing ICMP from ? It appears that is your problem.  If you can't adjust this behavior, you can just tick the "Disable Gateway Monitoring" checkbox under Routing to tell pfSense to always consider the gateway as UP.

  • I'm also having problems with Gateway monitoring via ping, but I'm not sure that it is the same problem as yours.

    You would not necessarily be able to ping that gateway from your LAN, depending on which WAN is used to do the ping.

    Since you have multi-WAN, a ping might go LAN -> WAN1, or it might go LAN -> WAN2.

    When you do your ping test from the pfsense box, you need to specify that the ping go out the same WAN that is using the gateway you are trying to ping.
