Re: DHCP Server giving ip's on the middle of the range

Create DHCP pools (IP -- Pool) and exclude the range that is used by the CISCO device.
You can link the various pools together with, use "next pool" option.

PS: Maybe not best approach to have two identical subnets on different machines. Might confuse routing

Better you use "Backup" for such things. ROS does a backup when you reset, so you should see that file under "FILES".

Re: Trying to setup load balancing with PCC, router doesn't use ISP2

SSL / https breaks if you do not set connection tracking (RP filter) to loose mode.

Or if that is not the case, first try with PCC "source address only" and see if that works.
Normally SSL should then work.
