WAN Analysis was added in firmware 8.0.0. The new feature will allow you to run a WAN to WAN speed test. I’m going to cover how to use the feature in this article**.
You’ll have the option of setting a device up as a Server or a Client. One device must be set up as a server to run the speed tests and the server must have a public IP address. This is done from the UI under the WAN Analysis tab.
The default port is 6000 and can be changed if required. The IP address of the WAN interface will be shown in the WAN Connection Status section.
The client side has a few more settings that can be changed. Make sure that the Control Port matches what’s been entered on the server side. Select the WAN(s) that will be used for testing and enter the Servers WAN IP address. Once all of the options have been set, click the Start Test button.
The test output will show the Data Streams Parameters, the Throughput as a graph, and the Results.
The test can be run again once it’s complete by clicking the Start button or you can click Close and change the parameters for the test.
