    Default Two uplinks, failover is always failing over

    It must be that I don't understand how this failover should work. - I have two uplinks:

    id 1 Starlink (eth0)
    id 4 DSL (eth3)

    I have tests setup for both uplinks. I have no failed tests but untangle defaults to the ID 4 - DSL when I want it to default to ID 1 Starlink. If I disable DSL, the connection to starlink works great. As soon as I enable DSL, (All tests are successful), all traffic gets routed out to DSL.

    Please help.

    Untangle has two multi-wan modules, WAN Fail over exists to determine if a WAN is up or down. Left to its own devices, the most recent "up" wins. It's there to simply invalidate a connection when a test fails.

    The 2nd module is what you're missing, WAN Balancer. It's job is to figure out how to best make use of all WANs on the platform. You want to set the DSL to 0% of your traffic, and the Starlink to 100%. That way, Untangle will never use the DSL unless the Starlink is offline.

    Thank you for the explanation. I do have WAN Balancer, I'll enable it now.
