Alternative monitor IP

  • Hi me again!  ;D

    Is the  Alternative monitor IP option in System: Gateways: Edit gateway used to monitor the line status? In that case, i cannot change it to put for example the line next hop router instead off the gateway ip. After i save it returns to the gateway ip! Am I doing something wrong? Maybe  :P!

  • Same here.

  • I will look into this.

  • Today's snapshot also seems to give errors on edits of Gateway Monitor IP's in multi-WAN.  If I edit GW for WAN, status shows yellow, and WAN goes dead.  Opt1 then handles all traffic.  If I edit Opt1, the same IP entered as alternate monitor IP is reflected in WAN GW as well, and both go yellow.

    If I manually edit config.xml (either from console or gui) with alternate monitor IP's and reboot, it boots with BLANK config.xml, and of course, this is no good…

    1 is DSL, other is Cable.  Each is NAT'd (for the moment), and DHCP'd private IP's.
