Configuring multiple WAN interfaces

This recipe describes how to configure multiple WAN interfaces in pfSense.

Getting ready

A pfSense system with a single WAN interface is nearly plug-and-play since a default gateway is created automatically. However, some of the recipes in this chapter require multiple WAN connections and those gateways must be configured manually. The following recipe describes how to configure two WAN interfaces which can be used later for redundant load balancing and/or failover.

Note

The following interfaces will be configured with private IP addresses for the purpose of this example, but an actual configuration would require each WAN interface to be properly configured using the settings provided by their respective ISPs.
