Multi WAN with wrong default gateway
« on: November 10, 2017, 01:30:03 pm »
Hi all,

I have a problem and I can't find the reason.

Configured a pfsense 2.3.3-RELEASE (amd64) with Gateway Group.
In System->Advanced->Miscellaneous option "Default gateway switching" is disabled.

PFSENSE itself has 3 gateways configured: ISP1 (, default gateway), ISP2 ( and LOCAL_GW (, for internal routing).

My Gateway Group configuration:
ISP1 as TIER 1
ISP2 as TIER 2
LOCAL_GW never

This LOCAL_GW is there just to static routes, not for internet purpose, but gateway groups configurations shows all gateways configured in pfsense.

The problem is pfsense is triggering member down on ISP1, showing in the log it has about 24% percent. (Two problems here: 1) It should take action only in 100% loss and 2) If I run a ping to IP using to monitoring this gateway, there is no loss at all).

MAIN PROBLEM: Instead of setting the ISP2 to default gateway, pfsense put my gateway LOCAL_GW as default gateway.

Did you guys know sometinh about this problem?
