Dual-Wan, accessing both modem's GUI



  • Evening' ladies and gents

    I have two identical modems that i am load balancing. Both are bridged, and the local IP cannot be changed. The GUI runs @ 192.168.100.1:80 on both modems. I am able to access one of the modem's by using a rule:

    Int LAN
    Source LAN net
    Dest single host 192.168.100.1
    (advanced) gateway (WAN1)

    If i manually switch the gateway setting to WAN2, i can then access the other modem. What is a feasible option to be able to access both of them simultaneously? Im figuring some sort of NAT rule, or using virtual IP's some how. Any advice would be appreciated.



  • ttt

    any input here?

    What about a nat redirection to the 2nd interface? If something like that would work, how would it? :P



  • Would a NAT rule work?
    Int LAN, Source = *, destination = 10.0.0.2, NAT IP = 192.168.100.1
    Int LAN, Source = *, destination = 10.0.0.1, NAT IP = 192.168.100.1

    Then create the associated rules where you set the gateway for both? Substitute 10.0.0.* with whatever you use for your LAN network.



  • I could see how this could be part of what's going to need to happen, but how does it know which 192.168.100.1 interface to reach?



  • I'm sorry, I totally skipped over the read about setting the rules for each gateway.

    So I can basically choose any ip in my LAN subnet, I.e 192.168.0.20 and .21 and nat them to 192.168.100.1, and set a rule for the destination of .20 to point at gateway wan1 and .21 to wan2?

    What interface am I applying the rules to?



  • I actually have no idea if it works like I thought it might. I'd need to test it, but for that I would somehow need to replicate your setup.
