I've been trying to get link aggregation working to my switch the last couple of evenings and it is being a bit of a !$#@% to figure out.
The use case is to set up HOME, WORK, LAB, DMZ vlans with a few remote users doing testing/development, and a couple of local users and then my home network.
I have installed the latest update Pfsense 2.3.
For WAN I have a single integrated nic. (em0)
For LAN I have a dual intel pro/1000 card (em1, em2)
My switch HP procurve 1810G-24 (gui based / no cli)
I have a couple of ubiquiti lite aps in a box behind me but that is for later.
If I configure either em1 or em2 as LAN in Pfsense everything is happy sauce. ( I can ping the router from a pc on my switch).
If I do the LAGG 2 step...
1. Add em2 to LAGG ( my_agg)
- set to LACP
2. Set my_agg to LAN
.... Life is ok.
- Add em2 to LAGG
.... doh no more ping.
BUT Wait you say... What about configuring the Switch.
In HP Speak Link Aggregation w/ LACP is a Trunk set as Dynamic with Admin on
My google fu has been poor on this one. It seems like it should work but I appear to be missing something.
Can I buy a vowel?
