Multi WAN , Fail over , inbound load balance


  • I use PFSense 2.3 with two WAN and I set Failover and loadbalance  , everything work good , but I am mot sure Load balance  work good too or no ?
    How I test Load Balance work good  ?
    and How I can test Load balance ?
    If I have two or more WAN on one PFsense system . can I use this documentation for Load balance ?

    https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Inbound_Load_Balancing

    for better load balance what I must do ?

    That link is for load balancing servers behind pfSense – meaning one external IP address, multiple servers behind the firewall.

    What you want uses multiple WANs/external addresses. In that case, the balancing would have to be done via DNS RR type records or some other means (external load balancer, BGP, etc)
