I´m doing a firewall setup using 6-STABLE + PF with two internet links
but I can't do the route-to rule function as I need.
(default gw) ______
Link A <-----------> |int A |
Link B <-----------> |int B |
A simple thing that I need to do is test the two Internet links to know
if they are up or not. To do this I could ping or connect tcp ports on
some external ips thought each link, using nc and hping I tried do this
generate connections/packets from each network interface connected to
each link but the packets always go out by the interface indicated by
machines default route.
I tried to add this rules in pf to force packets out by the right
interface based in your source address, but this does not work, and the
packets generated with ip of int B are going out by int A.
pass out log on $int_a route-to ( $int_b $int_b_gw ) from $int_b to any
pass out log on $int_b route-to ( $int_a $int_a_gw ) from $int_a to any
Am I forgetting something ? Any comments ?
