Balance 20x Virtual WAN

Hi Guys,

Can anybody tell me what BPL-021X-LC-VWAN is for? It says “Balance 20X Virtual WAN Activation License”. Does it mean I can convert one of the LAN ports to WAN?

I don’t recall seeing that on the data sheet before, so perhaps it is - the part number is pretty close to similar licences for other models.

Be nice if that is an option, certainly adds a bit of flexibility to the 20X which people have been asking for.

Wow, you guys always catch out some “Easter egg” in our marketing material.

Our team is working on the launch of BPL-021X-LC-VWAN. The marketing material is almost ready but still working on the manual. Can you further wait for a week or two?


Good update, thanks

Just saw it yesterday :smiley:

Sure will. Thanks for the update :slight_smile:

This will be HUGE help for my setup, as I need a second WAN for better redundancy!

You can use a usb to ethernet adapter in the usb port on the 20x today if you need a second wan.

Is there a set up guide on this?

@DarrylP, please refer to the links below:

Thanks. The how to bases it off of 3 ISPs. Can we have one ISP to WAN and then the second ISP to LAN untagged? Do we have to set the VLAN? Also, do we have to specify a lan port?

There are several ways to identify the traffic, you can setup all under outbound rules.

This is really giving a boost to B20x and giving the Balance line a run for their money. :wink:

How much of a memory footprint will multiple virtual WANs have on the B20x? I found OpenVPN WAN speeds cap at about 20-24 MBPS on the B20x, but the article virtual WAN article states speeds are basically capped at the max LAN port speed the virtual WAN is connectetd to.

Is there a limit to number of virtual WANS? I guess if an L2 switch is not being used, the limit is technically the number of available LAN ports on the B20x.
