How can i add firewall rules to not load balance traffic to these destinations


  • Web site incompatibility with changing IP addresses in load balancing
    Some websites do not work properly if requests from the LAN are initiated from multiple public IP addresses. Hence load balancing is incompatible with these sites. Common examples are sites that maintain login sessions, most frequently online banking. This is most commonly observed with HTTPS sites so usually HTTPS should not be load balanced. Occasionally it is a problem with HTTP sites that maintain session, but this is rare.
    For sites that do not function with load balancing, add firewall rules to not load balance traffic to these destinations or protocols.

  • I nee help on that too, someone please …


  • 1. Go to Firewall > Aliases

    2. Create an "IP" alias which will contain the sites you need to disable the Loadbalancing for (e.g. banking sites etc)

    3. Add sites to it, can be IP or FQDN

    4. Save + Apply

    5. Now go to FW Rules > LAN

    6. Create a new LAN > any rule with "Destination" set to the name of the alias that you created in Step 2.  (N.B. make sure the rule is above your "default" LAN->any rule)

    7. Click Advanced and set your gateway to whatever you want (WAN1, Default, WAN2 etc… anything except the name of your LB group)

    8. Save + Apply

    9. Profit  ;)
