I have a question on the “how” something works…
I have a gaming PC that uses one connection for gaming and a secondary connection for downloading stuff (game updates). Unfortunately, the PC uses port 80 for both downloads and game data. Because of this, I have an outbound policy for the PC that I toggle on and off.
Usually, I forget to flip the switch and a download starts on the wrong connection, so I pause the download, flip the switch, wait for the active sessions to timeout (60 seconds) [I confirm via the Active Sessions status page]. Then, I will try the download again (this time with the policy to use the “fast” connection). Sometimes it works as expected; but sometimes the downloads go to the wrong connection. The only surefire way to get the downloads to go out the connection I want is to disconnect the one I don’t want.
What am I missing?
