 Re: Dual WAN Backbone
Author: Victoria Chan

No VLan switched unfortunately. There is a private subnet that we use internally of 192.168.0.0/24 and the defaultroute goes to the FreeBSD box doing this dual WAN thing. The defaultroute for the private LAN is not the issue, but how does one go about putting a different default route for each WAN-A & WAN-B? I thought rc.conf sets up defaultrouter for system wide.

My intention is not to load balance at all but for redundancy of DNS & MX. WAN-A is for public access and WAN-B is for NAT LAN and tertiary DNS & MX backup. I am very happy to have IPNAT go through WAN-B as it has a higher bandwidth.

Another wrinkle is WAN-B uses DHCP, but even when I forced a hard-coded IP to it, so that I have full control the defaultroute, WAN-A becomes inaccessible from public when I use defaultroute for WAN-B, and when I use defaultroute for WAN-A, the IPNAT stops working.
