Hey guys,

Just want to ask a quick question, hopefully someone can help me.

I have kerio control ver 9.0.1 installed on the yacht I work on. We currently have two ways to connect to the internet via VSAT and through 4G.

We have a few VLANS set up, but the main ones are the crew network and the owners network. What I was hoping to do is put the owners through the 4G while we are close to land and the crew can share the VSAT. I enable the 4G network in network interfaces and set "multiple internet links - load balance" under internet connectivity. I know the load balance option isnt the right one, but its the only one that kind of works.

I then selected "Owners 4G" under the traffic rules page.

Now the problem is, is that some of the devices connected to the owners network go through the 4G perfectly fine, but some dont. At a guess, Im guessing they are trying to go through the VSAT still.

Can someone give me advice on what may be the issue here. Im guessing selecting "multiple internet links - load balancing" is probably not the right option when running two internet connections going to separate VLANS. But I dont think the other two options "single internet link" or "multiple internet links - fail over" are the right ones either.

Is kerio capable of having two VLANS going through two different internet connections? Or can you only use two separate internet connections for load balancing over all VLANS or fail over for all VLANS?

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Greig

Hi Greig,

Interesting setup you've got there.

What you could do is create a traffic rule with the source being the IP group of the Owner's VLAN and NAT to the 4G interface specifically (rather than internet interfaces in general); and of course the equivalent for the VSAT and crew.

You can even use time ranges to coordinate when these rules are active if there are specific times when you're close to land.

All the best,

Derek.

Hi Derek,

Cheers for the response.

I have attached a screen shot of our traffice rules. I pretty sure they are as you described.

The owners IP's are the source and the destination is the 4G interface. I haven't got it selected at the moment. But usually I would un-tick VSAT and then select owners 4G.

I get a feeling that there should be more options in internet connectivity other then the default ones which are:
- Single internet connection
- Multiple internet links - fail over
- Multiple internet links - load balancing

Maybe an option that is just multiple internet connections. With out fail over and load balancing.

i used to have similar setup and it worked fine.
the only difference is that i would set the destination as internet interfaces. then select in NAT option the interface the users would go out on the internet with.

Cheers for the reply.

What did you select for internet connectivity?

My options are:

- Single internet connection (brings up a warning if I have two internet interfaces selected)
- Multiple internet connections - fail over (Makes me pick a primary and a secondary)
- Multiple internet connections - load balancing (Makes me put weights in it)

You may want to look into Knavel. I have not used it personally but I saw a demo on it a year or 2 ago and it looks like a great tool for those who use Kerio on Yacts.

Greig,

I have same setup which is working correctly for me. Do you perhaps have a catchall rule that is sending traffic to Vsat that is not caught by your other rules? If you look at the connections "Status/Active Connections" you can see if your rules are correctly working.

I found this post after looking around for a way of doing this. Although I had managed to do it myself in the end.
I created a new IP Address group. Added the machines in this that I wanted to use my Cellweaver 4g to this group.
Created a new traffic rule and just used the wizard > On first option gave it a name (4g use) selected policy routing and then selected the 4g interface.
On the next page I added the group I created or you can add specific ip addresses or a combination.
Then enabled the 4g interface and set it to load balance. I never added a weight for the 4g.

I tested by tracing a route from a device going via 4g and a device from vsat and it worked a charm.
