Can't get WAN failover to work, without breaking local routing



  • Hi,

    I have setup a second WAN interface (which is connected to a local hotspot via WLAN). I have setup the second WAN interface as a tier 2 in a group.
    I can ping to an internet adres from both interfaces.

    I have tried adding a rule (see screenshot) for outbound (not LAN net) traffic to go via the WAN group. This works perfect. When I bring down the primary wan, it failovers to the WLAN.
    But, with this rule, my local routing breaks. I can't connect to any other local IP's in another subnet (via virtual IP's) anymore. Since I have put in 'not lan net', I would presume it would ignore the local LAN traffic.

    (in the screenshot I have disabled the rule)

    What do I have to set in the rule to get the failover to work AND not to break local routing.

    thanks!
