PFSense - Equal Cost Multi-Path Routing with Carp

We're trying to build some fail over into our new co-location facility.  I was asked questions by the Data Center that had me for a loss.

Currently we are using just one PFSense box with a single WAN connection.

In our new facility we are going to have 2 WAN connections.  I was asked if we were going to have devices capable of doing "Equal Cost Multi Path Routing"  Can the PFSense do this. while utilizing 2 routers?

My thought was to have the 2 internet connections come into 2 switches which then feed into the 2 PFSense machines.  With one /27 Network for us.  But we will have 2 gateways.

I have uploaded the copy of the Visio doc they sent me.  (IP addresses changed to protect the innocent)

Thanks!

Hello

Pfsense supports Quagga so you can have OSPF and OpenBGP so you can have BGP routing. Both support implementing ECMP

I would fire up a VM and 2 GNS boxes to test it out though.
