Routing and Multi-WAN¶
A core feature of any firewall or router is making decisions about where to send packets. In pfSense® software, 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).
