Troubleshooting Inbound Load Balancing

A more thorough troubleshooting guide for inbound load balancing can be found in the pfSense Book.

  1. Ensure that all servers in the pool have pfSense set as their gateway (very important)

  2. Make sure pools have been defined in Services > Load Balancer on the Pools tab

  3. Create a Virtual server mapping the Server Address (public firewall ip) to the pool

  4. 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.
