Does the RV340 support sticky/persistent sessions while load balancing over multiple WANs (i.e., once a session is initiated at a web site, the router keeps the connection on the same WAN that sent the initial request)?
My small business is using an RV340 with multi-wan+load balancing enabled (2 ISPs/WANs, precedence = 1,1).
In this configuration sessions do not persist at many sites where uses log in such as at a financial websites. For instance, upon enabling load balancing, users on our network could no longer log in to our bank's web site due to the changing IP addresses violating the security rules of that site.
Forcing all HTTPS connections to use a particular WAN via Policy-Based Routing is a partial fix/workaround; but it is not a true solution since it largely removes the benefit of load balancing (esp. since nearly all cloud-based services run over TLS nowadays). Is there an alternative?
Other multi-wan routers provide this feature (e.g., UTT routers). Am I missing the way that the RV340 facilitates this?
