I have this kind of setup and I can't figure out how this router thinks.
My setup uses Dual Wan in load balancing mode. I only need a single VPN tunnel. High availablity is my concern.
Site 1 has Fiber and Cable
Site 2 has Cable and FTTN
Every ISP supplies Static IPs
VPN works great in the event of an outage. I am still disappointed that it works in case a single primary WAN breaks, but is not operational if primary WAN on Site 1 shutdowns at the same time Site 2 secondary WAN stops. It's a really rare case but could happen.
Anyway, my problems lie where I need Protocol Binding to preserve secure WEB sessions (https, banking, supplier portal).
I have to bind, at least, port 443 to my primary WAN. This way, I can access websites and keep my session active.
Then, if I have to browse a HTTPS server on the other side of the VPN, Protocol Binding still tries to pass port 443 through WAN1. It does not even consider the VPN as a valid route first.
Problem (Maybe) Can I reduce Hop Count for Site 2 to less than 35?? P.S. I replaced addresses as I do not feel they are revelant.
|Destination IP||Subnet Mask||Default Gateway||Hop Count||Interface|
|WAN2 network addr||255.255.255.252||*||0||eth2|
|WAN1 network addr||255.255.255.248||*||0||eth1|
|Site 2||255.255.255.0||Site 1 Fiber Gateway||35||eth1|
|default||0.0.0.0||Site 1 Fiber WAN1||15||eth1|
|default||0.0.0.0||Site 1 Cable WAN2||40||eth2|
|default||0.0.0.0||Site 1 Fiber WAN1||40||eth1|
Thanks to all,
