Hey my question is in regards to drop-in-mode.
- If I have a Balance 380 with 3 WAN and will dedicate Sophos UTM behind WAN1 of 380 then if WAN1 goes down so does my Sophos, as they are on same public range?
- In the event question 1 happens what is the point of drop-in-mode if I can’t utilize any other LAN interfaces on the 380 and utilize DHCP on 380 for another subnet like VoIP phones?
- When Drop-In-Mode is enabled and working as designed, what does it do since my firewall can only utilize 1 WAN? Does it literally just load balance traffic specified in the 380 outbound policies?
*I am just trying to wrap my head around in fully because it seems a bit confusing as to how it fully operates or how it should operate based on documentation and videos.
*For example we used to use Edgewater Networks for of VoIP Phone deployments and these devices have a “proxy arp” setting where you can pass-through another public IP to another firewall attached to the edgemarc and tell the proxy arp pass-through command exactly what local interface to pass to on the edgemarc. But you can also still utilize ALL of the other LAN interfaces on the edgemarc for DHCP and they are all configurable in a “port based VLAN” mode.
