Hi everyone. I'm having issue with the online game played by many in my network. I'm still new to pfsense please any help will be appreciated.
The pfsense in my network is a new server bulit a few days ago. i manage to mindle around with it for a few days now. in my network we have 3 internet line (adsl). The pfsense is to manage the 3 internet connection in such 2 internet connection are load balanced for browsing and the another one for online game purposes.
the current pfsense server is still under testing stage and so all the network are in the same 192.168.1.xxx /24 including all 3 modems, wan, opt1 and opt2. all wan, opt1 and opt2 have the gateway to each respecting adsl connection accordingly.
the 3 modem are at
the wan,opt1,opt2 are at
pfsense resides on LAN at 192.168.1.1
my first setting is to set the load balancer
at gateway 251 and 252 and name it BothAdsl
and i change the firewall default LAN rule given by newly install pfsense part gateway to point to "BothAdsl"
when i visit www.whatismyip.com
my ip changes if i refresh the page to the 2 ADSL line given ip.
next i set the port needed for the online game :-
In the pfsense server, i also install the squid3 as a proxy service for my network. not too sure if this affects my problem.
the problem on the online game (Heroes of newerth) only effects on the connection to the chatserver side port 10031 TCP. Overall the game play have no problem. game can be played normally, problem happens on the in game chat service. its just that the chat server connects and disconnects to a point my friend got annoyed.
below are a few things that i print-screen to investigate with time stamp. (note that the pc i'm on resides on the ip of 192.168.1.117)
this image says dc around time 13:13 to 13:16
this picture says something about when the game connected to the chat server at port 10031
this is the firewall log taken from pfsense. the arrow is the time 192.168.1.117 gets connect or dc... (i dono how to read maybe dc)
please note that if the client pc's gateway point directly to one of the ADSL this problem dont exist
Client pc connect trough pfsense playing the same game disconnect differently and randomly...
i did try the same setting and apply it on one of the ADSL's firewall and no problem happen and client connect trough the particular gateway ADSL can play the game but not other online game as the port are not open.
if this problem can be fix trough "Manual Outbound NAT rule generation (Advanced Outbound NAT (AON))" can you tell me how to i put this? i'm abit confuse how does this AON works.
can anyone share some light on what i can do to fix this?
p/s sorry about the over size pictures...
