I just purchased an RV082 Dual WAN gateway/router because I have both Cable and DSL feeds into my office. It all works fine until I try to access a secure web site or have a conversation through my Vonage internet phone. In failover mode it all works. As soon as I select load balancing, I have failures. I don't see this listed anywhere as a "known problem" so there must be some kind of workaround if this is not a bug. Has anyone else seen this and how have you solved thes?
>So I set both HTTPS port:443 and HTTPS Secondary port:8443 to WAN1 and that seems to work so far. I assume that the router will still automatically switch to WAN2 should WAN1 fail.
SR: That's correct.
I agree with David. For a website login page that requires multiple https/tcp sessions coming from the same IP address, RV0xx load balance (round robin) for incoming TCP sessions alone wont work. Use the Service management configuration to bind https protocol (443) to one of the WAN interfaces and see if that helps.
The problem you are having is your doing load balance and the traffic to the secure site is going out both wan's. The secure site is waiting for a response from the original wan ip that established the connection and then it receives the reply from the other wan ip address. This is a common issue. You can do protocol binding under the system management tab and have all your https traffic going out one wan ip address, this will fix this issue.
