I have an MBR1400 that has 3 WAN connections. lets call it connection 1,2,3 with 3 being the most expensive.

I want to be able to reduce the amount of traffic on connection 3. Is it possible for me to configure it so that everytime it failover to connection 3, only devices connected to say port 1 can go online but everything else remain accessible over the network?

IE: Port 1 assign to the DC
Port 2 assigned to users

when all connection fail, all users no longer have internet, mean while the DC remain oline but at the same time the users still can access the DC resources, like application and mapped drives.

You can't define the connection via port type and what traffic would run over say LAN 1. I'd recommend taking a look at the WAN Affinity settings within the admin interface to tweak the policy rules. It's a little confusing on the implementation but you might be able to tweak it to do what you want from there.

By chance have you looked at a Balance 30 as an alternative for a 3 WAN router? The policy rules within the 30 will allow you to easily do what you want less defining it via LAN port.

All you need to do is create the outbound policy rule within the router to only allow specific traffic over WAN 3 (Devices you still want up), which can be done via IP Address, IP Network or MAC address. The local traffic would still work over the LAN as the policy rules would only be defined to deny WAN to specific devices.

You can checkout a demo of this here - http://3gstore.com/page/120_peplink_web_admin_demo.html

Both the username and password are admin and you'll find the settings I was referring to above under "Network" at the top and select "Outbound Policy" from the sub menu on the left. Add a rule and you'll see the various algorithms you can use to achieve what you want to do.

Unfortunately, we're 6 months into the project and have 25% of the 56 sites deployed with the Cradlepoint. I did recommend Peplink when we were still working on the white board but the decision was made from someone with a higher pay grade than mine. Sad

CP support did mention that it's possible with WAN Affinity but the more I look at the WAN affinity, the more confused I got. CP support also seem to be unfamiliar with WAN Affinity either. Rolling Eyes

Yes, I agree, it is confusing and probably could be simplified. We will look at it for a future release.

In the meantime, do you still need help with setting things up for Wan Affinity or did you figure it out?
