How to failover _quickly_?
« on: March 01, 2018, 08:14:43 am »
Hi. I have 2.4.2-RELEASE-p1, two WANs (cable and 4G) and I have selected "Flush all states when a gateway goes down" and to be used with firewall rules, I have created gateway groups for cable, 4G, cable&4G (with different tier combinations) + tried using WAN1 and WAN2 in the said firewall rules. The point is that I have tried multiple different configurations.

Gateway groups trigger level is "Packet loss or High latency".

The problem is that if WAN1 goes down, the route is transferred to WAN2, _but_ only after 60 s delay even though the dashboard shows after a couple of seconds that the gateway is down. I have not found so far a working setting for this delay. So how do I configure pfSense to reroute the traffic almost instantly if the WAN is down?
