3 WAN with load balancing n failover



    I have 3 leased lines (11 Mbps, 9 Mbps, 5Mbps). I want to do following setup :

1) Load Balance WAN A + WAN B
2) Failover between WAN A and (Load balance between WAN B + WAN C with 2:1 weight) ie if WAN A fails traffic should load balance         between Wan B and Wan C.
3) Failover between WAN B and WAN C

To do so I have created Gateway group

1) WanAWanB   

         WanA    WanB
   Tier      1        1
Weight    1        1

2) WanAUP

          WanA     WanB    WanC
   Tier        1        2       2
Weight      1        2       1

3) WanBUp
            WanB     WanC
Tier          1        2

In Firewall LAN Rules

Allow all LAN Traffic through WanAWanB
Allow all LAN Traffic Through WanAUP
Allow all LAN Traffic through WanBUP

Is my setup correct. Any Suggestions


    This is how I made it work finally.

Created a Gateway Group Grp1   ----     WAN  A      WAN B    WAN C
                                           Tier                 1                1             2

This is acting as load balance between WAN A n WAN B .... if WAN A/WAN B fails traffic goes through WAN B/WAN A respectively... if both fails traffic goes through WAN C.

I didn't create separate  Groups for load balancing and failover as suggested by pfsense official documentation.

Though I couldn't test load balancing as WAN A is down from last 10 days.

Thank You

so in the end you resolve the issue only by tiers ?
non wheigh were used?


          Yes I have kept the weight settings as default. It was required if I do a load balance between WAN B(~9 Mbps) n WAN C (~5 Mbps).
