Possible to increase delay before gateway is brought back up?
« on: September 07, 2012, 11:24:13 am »
Version   2.0.1-RELEASE (i386)
built on Tue Dec 13 14:10:43 EST 2011
FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p6

You are on the latest version.
Platform    nanobsd    (4g)

I've setup a dual wan with failover only using gateway groups.  The problem I'm having is when the main gateway "bounces" repeatedly (goes offline then immediately comes back up).  When the main gateway comes back up it switches back to it instantly.  Is there any way to create a delay before it is brought back up?  To make sure its going to stay up?  With it going up and down I lose all connectivity.

You can set time under routes for individual GW under advanced.

Thanks for the reply!
Finally got out to the site to give this a try.  But I can't seem to see any setting like that under advanced.
I'm probably just blind though. Could you be more specific?

Thanks again!

Go to System -> Routing -> and edit the Gateway in question.  Click Advanced and you will find the Down option.
