I've followed these ones to play with loadbalancing :

There are a lot of docs on the net...

somehow i have difficulty understanding this lines under the tomas.pdf

addchain=prerouting connection-mark=WAN1->LANssrc-address-list=LAN action=mark-routing new-routing-mark=ISP1_Route
addchain=prerouting connection-mark=WAN2->LANssrc-address-list=LAN action=mark-routing new-routing-mark=ISP2_Route

=it is talking about the wan2lan but why it uses src address ans LAN

Glad to know you've found it helpful.

I'm learning too so probably I'm not the right person to ask for detailed explanations, however , those lines are used to manage a connection coming from WAN to be answered out on the same WAN

First the incoming connection from a specific WAN with no marks is marked as WANx->LANs

Then the packets flowing out from LAN (address list=LAN) , with WANx->LANs mark are further "routing-marked" as ISPx_Route to be associated to relative ISP route into the IP routing table: look at previous page with :

add gateway=1.1.1.1 routing-mark=ISP1_Route distance=1

I hope this is clear (and not a mistake.....)
