Multi-WAN Policy Based Routing not working
I tried looking at this in the forums but not getting very far.
1- I have Multi-WAN with a default gateway and both tiered, the primary in Tier1 which is where I want all traffic to go and the other gateway in a Tier 2 as a fallback. I have gateway switching enabled.
Failiver Tier: GW_1 = Default - Priority Tier 1 GW_2 = Failover - Priority Tier 2
2 - I have on the LAN interface a .254 IP address AND I also have a virtual IP address of .43 (had to do that for now)
3 - I make my firewall rule on the LAN like so:
Pass > Interface: LAN > IP4 > here I tried LAN Address, LAN Net, individual IP's, an alias with 2 IP's in it...nothing so far > Destination: 184.108.40.206 (for example) > Under "Advanced Options" for "Gateay" I choose my GW_2
I even tried to choose the failover_gw it created for the failover tier but when I try to "tracert" to a destination IP address out on the Interwebs (220.127.116.11) in this example I still go out of GW_1 and not GW_2.
Nothing I do seems to do policy based routing through that GW_2 gateway.
Is it because:
1 - It's a tier 2 gateway?
2 - It's because of a routing rule I'm missing
3 - It's because of something else I'm missing…?
Any help would be awesome. I'm scratching my head.
Oh - also note that I dragged the rule in front of the default LAN rule allowing any * any *. So it should match that traffic first and route through GW_2 but doesn't seem to!
Another "oh gawd" post from me. Shesh. Sorry but maybe this will help someone in the future.
I had to wait until the states cleared / reset.
Once that happened…done! It's working.
Manual reset of the states is a good idea when you change your rules in any significant way, Diagnostics > States >Reset States.
