Troubleshooting Inbound Load Balancing¶
A more thorough troubleshooting guide for inbound load balancing can be found in the pfSense Book.
- Ensure that all servers in the pool have pfSense set as their gateway (very important)
- Make sure pools have been defined in Services > Load Balancer on the Pools tab
- Create a Virtual server mapping the Server Address (public firewall ip) to the pool
- Add a firewall rule on the WAN or OPT interface permitting traffic to the internal pool IP addresses. Aliases are handy for this task
If trouble continues, gather this information and send a request for help on the forum or the support mailing list.
