I just purchased a pair of Balance 710’s and unboxed them last night. The purpose of the Balance devices is to link our primary office location with a smaller secondary office location nearby. All computing services will remain at the main site with only a very basic network at the secondary site. Included in those services are SIP telephony, Windows AD services, and database applications provided by a few 3rd party vendors.
At the primary site I have two consumer class Internet connections (Comcast and Verizon Fios).
At the secondary site I have only one consumer class Internet connection (Verizon Fios).
In addition to the two ISP’s I have a site-to-site (line of sight) WiFi connection using Ubiquiti equipment.
I would like to build a PepVPN between the sites and utilize SpeedFusion with smoothing to assure that I get a reliable, predictable link that is suitable for sensitive traffic like VoIP/SIP and video conferencing.
To start I walked through the Setup Wizard and configured my ISP WAN links and tested that they are working as expected. Now I need to configure the interface/link that will connect to the remote site via the point-to-point WiFi. My question is, what is the appropriate way to define the connection, the link subnet, and the remote network(s) present on the other side of that link? I may not even be asking the question very well so please, cut me some slack as this is my first time working with a Balance device. Put a different way, how do I configure the site-to-site link so that it can be included in the PepVPN as a preferred path to our secondary site but not be seen by the Balance as an Internet connection (zero route).
Any help and guidance provided is greatly appreciated.
