Multi WAN, Multi LAN - problems



  • Hello,
    I am facing some problems with a dual LAN/WAN configuration as follows:

    WAN on network card ue0 (USB network card) is a PPPoE connection going to a fiberlink router (connection is up - see screenshot below)
    LAN network on card rl0 (PCI network card) is an internal, DHCP server running on PfSense routing 192.168.1.1/24 through NAT outbound on WAN (screenshots below)
    OPT1 on network card em0 (onboard network card) is a PPPoE connection going to a fiberlink router (connection is up - see screenshot below)
    OPT2 network on card rl1 (PCI network card) is an internal, DHCP server running on PfSense routing 192.168.10.1/24 through NAT outbound on OPT1 (screenshots below)


    The WAN/LAN network setup works… the OPT1/OPT2 does not...
    i have ping to 8.8.8.8 from WAN fine...
    i have ping to 8.8.8.8 from LAN (as i should)....
    i have ping to 8.8.8.8 from OPT1 fine...
    i DO NOT have ping to 8.8.8.8 from OPT2... WHY?
    here are some more screenshots of my configs:

    please help, any suggestion is helpful… i'm going crazy over this the past few days
    thanks

    You need to monitor different IPs for each GW when you have two PPPoE connections with the same GW.



  • My problem is not with the monitoring of the GWs it's with the fact that i have internet access on the WAN-LAN pair but not on the OPT1-OPT2 pair although the settings are the same

    Yes, your problem definitely IS with monitoring. When you try to monitor the same IP for multiple GWs, it will NOT work and the WAN will be considered down!!! Just look at the screenshot you posted:



  • Use 8.8.8.8. as your second Monitor IP

  • using 8.8.8.8 as monitor ip for OPT1 allows me to ping 8.8.8.8 through OPT2, but it allows me to ping ONLY 8.8.8.8, no internet access (ping in any other external IP)

    both GW are UP, just restarted the server… still no access through OPT2-OPT1
