Multi Wan WAN2 question



  • Hi Guys,

    It's my first time to configure a Multi WAN pfSense box so please bear with me  ;D anyways I have a working pfSense box with web and mail servers and all, we have a spare 2nd DSL line so why not set it up as failover and load balance, my question is do I have to assign a public static ip to WAN2 interface? or do I have to assign it a private address that does not conflict with my current LAN address?

    TIA.

  • As an added information when I enabled WAN2 interface I am receiving this error from the pfSense console:

    dc0 watchdog timeout!
    dc0 reset never completed!

    I have no idea what it means.

    It means that pfsense thinks that particular ethernet NIC is not connected to anything.  Perhaps you have a bad cable or the device it is connected to requires that you use a crossover cable?

    Best,



  • It is connected to the 2nd DSL modem and I'm using a straight cable for this, same with my other pfSense boxes. It is the same cable I used for the 2nd pfSense box that serves as our manual failover (I know it's an ugly backup)
