Failback to Primary even though Secondary is still UP?


  • Is there some way to enable/code a preempt feature like HSRP, etc do?

    My secondary connection is wireless and has a lot of latency.  I can pull the plug on my primary and I failover no problem to the secondary WAN.  When I bring the primary back online though, it never switches back from the secondary to the primary on its own.  The only way I can get it to fail back is to manually unplug my secondary wireless WAN.

    I have been reading and have not come across a way to do this.  I might just be overlooking it.  BTW- I'm running 2.0beta5

    Thanks in advance.

    There isn't an option to do this (but I think there is a feature request ticket open for something similar)

    The existing connections will continue to use the second WAN but new connections should go out the primary once it's back online.
