WAN failover without Gateway Groups



  • In my LAN I have 2 links for internet browsing. Half of my clients I make them go out through one link and the other half through the other link using firewall rules.
    I'm looking for a way so that if a link falls, my clients who browse through the fallen link go to the other link.
    All this I want to achieve without using Gataway Groups (Multi-WAN).
    Would someone illustrate to me how I could do it?
    I appreciate your time and expertise.
    Best regards

    Gabriel



  • The way to do this is with gateway groups. Why would you not want to use gateway groups? Just create two groups, one with wan tier 1 and opt tier 2, the other opt tier 1, wan tier 2. Point the rules to the groups instead of the gateway.

    I've used Gateway Groups a long time, but the sticky connections don't work and I have a lot of problems with expired sessions (banks and many others sites).
    That's why I'm looking for another alternative.

    Yes they do. Sticky connections are more a potential solution for load balancing setups than failover.
