Client VPN High availability

Client VPN High availability

We have WAN 1 and WAN2

The VPN clients have an FQDN associated with  WAN1

If WAN1 Fails does the IP address  associate with WAN2 for VPN users?




Is there a setting for this?

It may take up to 10mins depending on the TTL

The Dynamic DNS updates automatically to whatever Public IP the MX is using, but it can take about 10mins go update as per this:


Note: The expected TTL for dynamic DNS records is typically about 10 minutes, so you may need to wait 10 minutes before testing to see accurate results.
