Multi WAN OpenVPN behaviour after recovery from failover



  • Hi all,

    I have two Internet gateways:
    WAN - Faster line
    OPT1 - Slower line

    OpenVPN client is running on LAN. Failover is setup with WAN as Tier 1 and OPT1 as Tier 2. Failover works perfectly, whenever a line goes down, OpenVPN connectivity is restored through the other other line. However, when both the connections are back up again, OpenVPN does not always seem to use WAN (the faster line) for passing traffic.

    In case WAN goes down all OpenVPN traffic switches to OPT1. However when WAN comes back up, I would like OpenVPN to use WAN to pass all traffic, this doesn't seem to happen automatically.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!



  • What pfSense version?
    OpenVPN server or client bound to a gateway group should fail-over and fail-back on pfSense 2.1

    What pfSense version?
    OpenVPN server or client bound to a gateway group should fail-over and fail-back on pfSense 2.1

    pfsense version 2.0.3-RELEASE (amd64)
    OpenVPN client running in pfsense. Failover works well, no problems. When the failed WAN interface comes back online, traffic is still routed through secondary OPT1 and does not switch back to faster WAN.
    I should switch to 2.1?
