Routing and Multi-WAN

A core feature of any firewall or router is making decisions about where to send packets. In pfSense, gateways are hosts which forward traffic to other networks. Packets can be routed to a gateway based on their destination in a traditional way (static routes), based on firewall rule matching criteria (policy routing), or even to multiple gateways for load balancing or failover (multi-wan).
