I have successfully setup a failover connection from my two WAN interface. my question is do i have to use both interface (WAN1 & WAN2) to my traffic policy?? is there other way to do this?

see example below:

INTERFACE
WAN1 200.100.200.x
WAN2 200.100.300.x
LAN1 192.168.10.x
LAN2 192.168.20.x

TRAFFIC POLICY

name:
internet access
source:
LAN1
LAN2
destination:
WAN1
WAN2
service:
DNS
HTTP
HTTPS
translation:
NAT

I do not think KWF is ready (compatable) to attempt the thing you wish to accomplish that thing is called MultiHoming and is available on Linux/Unix servers.

The reason i ask this is because we noticed from our testing that if we disabled either of the WAN interface (physically remove the cable to see wheather the failover works), the internet connection becomes sluggish/intermitent/slow and after you remove the disabled WAN interface from the traffic policy, it will slowly turns back to normal speed.

both WAN interface has the same bandwith from different provider, each procedure has 10min interval to see any differences. other things to considered.

-DNS forwarding is enabled
-Forward DNS queries to the server automatically is selected

for some of you who have tried and test it, feel free to post your reply.

thanks

thanks kesleri for immediate respond,
Our objective is to make sure the failover option works well at all times, we dont intend a MultiHoming setup. we have a 24x7 operation and the tech guys (me) works only on a day shift. At present this configuration is working fine with us. but we noticed during our simulated test that it slows down the connection (i wonder why). we also found a temporary solution, that if we remove the disabled WAN interface from the traffic policy the problem is resolved. (refer to the sample i posted earlier)

what were thinking right now is that the TRAFFIC POLICY still using the WAN interface specified even it is disabled or down. is there a way like setting up another object that would refer to your outside interface (2 or more WAN interface), that would automatically shift to the one specified ACTIVE by the CONNECTION FAILOVER.

For those who have the setup somewhat identical to ours let me know if you observe the same behavior.

hope someone from kerio tech support group can answer.
