We got multiple Peplink balance routers around the world with internet connections but also MPLS VPN for quality of service hence voice traffic.
I know that the Balance are not designed to run with MPLS but it works well, except for one thing … the “Interface health check” is limited to PING, DNS & HTTP …
So when a remote MPLS access goes down, my local Balance router does not notice it (as the health check is based on pinging local MPLS POP) and so my outbound policy does not swap the traffic to the speedfusion
The option that I found would be to run OSPF with the MPLS POP but two questions :
- Is the Balance able to run OSPF on the WAN interface ?
- If so then is the Balance able to check its routing tables (Speedfusion & OSPF) and swap the traffic from a WAN interface (running OSPF) to a Speedfusion (or vice versa) ?
Thanks in advance for your prompt support !
