First time posting.
I am a long time Linux user (desktop and server) and started with
FreeBSD a year ago.
Thanks to the book Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Edition I learned a lot about
the OS and how to configure different services I used in Linux (Slackware).
My post is regarding something I couldn't find information on how to
implement it. Here's the situation:
I had a proxy server (Squid + Dansguardian) under Slackware on the LAN
which, via 'ip route' I make it use 3 gateways connected each one to an
ADSL line and balance the requests.
Unfortunately my server crashed and I took the oportunity to install a
new one under FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE. Squid and Dansguardian are working
fine. My problem is that I don't know how to make the server use the
other 2 gateways I have left and balance the requests on all ADSL lines.
192.168.10.2/16 1st gateway (1 NIC to LAN - 2 NIC
to ADSL modem)
192.168.30.100/16 2nd gateway
192.168.30.1/16 3rd gateway
I found it could be done with PF (also read most of The Book of PF) but
I am quite lost about how to do it.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
