Some applications do not work properly with asymmetric routing. That being said, almost all applications work fine with asymmetric routing. We do asymmetric traffic out to the internet and have no issues at all. I have seen where Microsoft Teams did not like asymmetric traffic over a private network and that is the most recent issue I have come across regarding asymmetric traffic.

Things to consider:

Are there access-list on one side of the routers and not the other side.

Is there a firewall not depicted in the diagram that only effects one side.
