Bonding and Load balancing with PPPOE connections

Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:01 am

Running is to a issue I have look high and low and don't see a solution.

I'm attempting to create a Bonding interface but under Slaves I get the option for WAN1 and WAN2. When I select them and click apply the PPPoE-out1 and PPPoE-out2 interfaces error out as Client is on slave interface.

How do I create a bond with WAN interfaces that require PPPoE's and VLAN's associated with specific WAN interfaces?

Wow, you are real... your other posts didn't suggest that.

You can only bond together L2 interfaces (EoIP tunnels and Ethernets). PPPoE is an L3 tunnel interface, so you have to use load distribution. Check per-connection-classifier, nth, random matchers in /ip firewall mangle.
Instead of writing novels, post /export hide-sensitive. Use find&replace in your favourite text editor to systematically replace all occurrences of each public IP address potentially identifying you by a distinctive pattern such as my.public.ip.1.
