We are working on a Balance One Core to which is connected a good quality Ethernet connection (WAN1) and a 4G USB modem. We’re having certain issues with connectivity between one of the router’s clients, a radio repeater, and the server to which it is connected. As one step in troubleshooting, we changed the Priority WAN from 4G (the usual setting) to Ethernet. Importantly, the rule is the first rule in the list. “Terminate Sessions on Link Recovery” is checked. The client is defined in the rule by IP address. What we’ve found is that the Balance often ignores the outbound setting when we invoke a procedure such as this:
- Change the Priority WAN in the rule and save it.
- Perform a hard (power off/on) restart of the client (the repeater – done remotely via web switch).
- Confirm that the outbound policy took effect.
Any thoughts on this? (I might add that we’ve been able to reproduce this behavior at two other locations with Balance One Core devices.)
