    Default Wan failover and interface priority

    Hello everyone,

    I've tried to search for a similar topic but couldn't find it, so sorry if someone already asked the same question.

    I'm trying to set up Wan Failover but I'm having a problem with interface priority, I get it that the lowest ID will have priority over the highest and that I'm able to remap interfaces, however how I can I set it up if my main Wan sits on a VLAN? It automatically gets id 100 and doesn't allow me to change it, so to activate Wan Failover i'm stuck at my LTE backup connection having higher priority than my fiber link which has a VLAN configuration as is a requirement by my ISP.

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you.

    You need to add WAN Balancer to set interface priority by using weights in WAN Balancer.

    Hello, thank you for your reply.

    Do you mean WAN Balancer alongside WAN Failover or instead of it?

    Thank you.

    Both are needed.

    Failover just figures out if a WAN is up or down, and gives Untangle the ability to juggle more than one default gateway.
    Balancer upgrades failover with all sorts of control. It can work without Failover, but it has no means of knowing if a WAN is down, so if a WAN is down and it's running alone whatever percentage of traffic using that WAN will fail.

    So yeah, realistically you need both.
