Re: Layer2 Failover

I tried with bonding method and used active-backup method. However this does not work fully. Reason: Both router are not connected directly. There are many switches and devices on this fiber link. So if link fails then MII or ARP does not able to detect down/broken status and keeps primary link up e...

Re: Layer2 Failover

Ok, one problem is:
My ISP does not allow BPDU across the fiber link.

Re: Layer2 Failover

I tried RSTP. I am having some issue. I want to make Port 1 as primary port (root port) and Port 2 as alternate port. I set Priority of Port2 to 30 and kept Port1 priority to 10. both ports are part of bridge which is set to RSTP. So in actual, port1(10 priority) shall be Root and port2(30 priority)...

Re: Layer2 Failover

"Without interference" means clients should not be affected. Any manual switch over would take time and clients would be affected. I really have to go with L2. How can i use RSTP? would you pls let me know. EoIP - i am also not sure how to use that particularly in my scenario. I thought EoIP would a...

Re: VPN Add Route - Cannot ping PC behind VPN

with DD WRT, using PPTP, client on other side can ping PCs at server side which do not have GW or even on different GW.

As you said Proxy ARP can work, can you pls explain how to do it? or any other way to accomplish this.
Thanx for replies.

Re: VPN Add Route - Cannot ping PC behind VPN

i do not want to give internet access to those PCs so not assigning GW. Also one more thing: few clients are on different GW, see below diagram. I also want those PCs who are on different gateway to be accessed. Importantly, i can do this in some other brand VPN router but do not know how to in Mikr...
