My Peplink Balance 20 is coming today. I have used a NETGEAR FVS336G for a few years and once I had it setup it was OK… but it took a while to setup to where I had no issues. Anyhow with a new router I have a few questions right off the bat. Some are easy, some a bit more involved. Thanks for any help in advance.
What do I need to do to make sure my Vonage service will work OK. I dont think it likes switching from one wan to another so I guess the enforced rule comes into play. What if its WAN associated with the device goes down. I thought enforced would not auto rollover. Is there a better rule to consider?
On the outbound policy rules… can the destination ip address be a range instead of a single number? i.e. 192.168.1.230-192.168.1.250 ?
I sometimes upload via FTP, fairly large files. Will a “load balanced” scenario cause a problem? I would think the internet service I am uploading to will not allow this. What rule should I use to allow for upload FTPs to go to one specific wan?
Any help you can provide on these items would be appreciated.
