    Dual WAN Load Balance or Fallback?

    I hear you on the latter. Linux avoids the problem by having the ability to assign route tables and do selective routing.

    [Q] CakeQOS with Dual WAN Load Balancing Possible?

    Understood. Thanks for your reply. Stock QoS (Adaptive QoS) does a sanity check before turning on and asks you to switch DualWAN to failover mode, so I think the answer is self evident. If I want load balancing, I don't get QoS is the simple answer - I just figured I'd ask a guy with FlexQoS in...

    [Q] CakeQOS with Dual WAN Load Balancing Possible?

    My secondary WAN remained up, I was able to browse the web. But CakeQoS still reported as not running. Without promises, and within the confines of "might work" - by "might work at least on the primary interface", do you mean that while it might stay up - CakeQoS will only ever work its magic...

    Dual WAN Load Balance or Fallback?

    dual wan load balancing shouldn't break web browsing in any way shape or form. The only time load balancing decisions are made is upon the initiation of a netflow. Once a path is established, its always going to use the same WAN endpoint until the stream is complete. When you visit a webpage...

    [Q] CakeQOS with Dual WAN Load Balancing Possible?

    Hi all, I've done some searching but can't seem to find a definitive answer for the theoretics or the problems I'm running into. I have a stable setup with Dual WAN Load Balancing in place on an AX56U. Good broadband is hard to come by here. Dual WAN is composed of: 1x Drop into Bridged DSL...

    [AC87U] Firmware 384.4, VPN rules not working

    Sorry to switch subjects again. I noticed with this script, I am unable to query remote OpenVPN endpoints from the ASUS Bash shell. WiFi clients hanging off of it can. This presents a problem for me because dnsmasq is forwading queries for a particular domain to a DNS server across the VPN...

    OpenVPN domain based DNS routing with DNSFilter On

    Update: I got a USB flash drive now to install Diversion on and after noticing that dnsmasq.log wasn't catching any traffic, I realized my "Exclusive" VPN configuration was forcing all my local WiFi clients to use the split-tunnels VPN DNS server for ALL DNS traffic (despite the fact they are...

    OpenVPN domain based DNS routing with DNSFilter On

    Solved: I forgot to put "Accept DNS Configuration" into "Exclusive" mode. Once doing so and respinning the VPN configuration quoted above + ENABLING Dns filtering (using Quad9 as an example but I'll be using Diversion and setting this to Router mode soon) - split DNS tunnelling for...

    OpenVPN domain based DNS routing with DNSFilter On

    Hi all, I have an always on VPN tunnel to work, over which I'm exposing Active Directory for domain traffic for external laptops. This works fine with OpenVPN clients direct on the laptop. Ported to Merlin, this also works fine. Routing, DNS, AD, etc. is provided to all my local LAN clients...

    [AC87U] Firmware 384.4, VPN rules not working

    I will test the scenario again and get back with technicals. Essentially, your script is working for me and forcing routing for VPN out of wan0 - while both WANs are up. This required putting in "local wan0" into my openvpn profile connection. If however I toggled WAN1 off, routing to OpenVPN...

    [AC87U] Firmware 384.4, VPN rules not working

    I just got this thing and apparently you're the man for everything I need to do :) Thanks for this. I have to use the local wan0 in my openvpn profile, but it stops working if secondary WAN goes down in LB mode. I have to remove the local wan0 line for it to come up with a single WAN. Any...

    How does one make the mount -o bind permanent?

    RT-AX56U Secondary WAN DHCP

    I reflashed again, reset the 4G modem and remembered to on/off toggle the connection on the ASUS. It seemed to come up. Go figure.

    [Solved] Dual Wan with 1 OpenVpn Client and ability to choose from which to wan to go out.

    Hi all, Having a problem with this script. I needed it because once I enabled DualWAN in load balancing mode while my ASUS was an OpenVPN client to work (completely separate /24) - my ASUS could ping remote clients over VPN but ASUS WiFi clients couldn't. Turn off dual wan and it worked...
