Client VPN Using WAN 2 (Secondary)

Client VPN Using WAN 2 (Secondary)

I have a client that wants the Client VPN to connect through his secondary WAN 2 connection.  I wasn't able to find anything describing that this was possible on the net or this community.  I did some testing in our lab and I wasn't able to figure out a way to get it to work.


Is this a feature that is currently not possible?  I think it would be really nice to have though

Re: Client VPN Using WAN 2 (Secondary)

So your client VPN is going to use what your Primary WAN connection is. What you can do is have WAN 2 be listed as your Primary WAN under traffic shaping but then have all other subnets use WAN 1 as their preferred link.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Client VPN Using WAN 2 (Secondary)

Go "Security Appliance/Traffic Shapping".  Whatever port you select under "Uplink selection/Global Preferences/Primary Uplink" because the port used for client vpn.  Note it can take 10 minutes to kick in after you change it.


From where you can configure "Flow Preferences/Internet Traffic" to override this and make all your Internet traffic go back out WAN1 (if that is what you want).
