Re: How to go back to dynamic IP in DHCP server [SOLVED]

He does have a valid point. I had the same question once. I suspect it gets asked by anyone who's assigned a static by mistake and wanted it back to dynamic. The solution - deleting the lease - doesn't feel very natural - especially the first time you do it. A button that simply carried out the comm...

I've searched and can't find answer - multiple IP ranges on bridge

Our UBNT devices have a backup IP capability. I don't want to use the primary pool for this. They all plug into the same switch (SWOS) and into a port with a bridge. I also have two static IP ranges I need to add as well. Each time I try I can't add additional ranges to the same bridge. Am I doing s...

Weird issue. 3011 passes static external and internal ips just fine using two ports plugged into the same switch. But a CCR I can't get it to do it. I thought the CCR was bad. Bought a new one (ccr 1009). It won't do it either. Any ideas?

Re: Need quick and east non-payment redirect for a single customer

I kind of hoped that you have it all figured out and you only missed the part how to match against MAC address instead of IP address. ;) In other words, that you'd only exchange src-address=1.2.3.4 for src-mac-address=01:02:03:04:05:06 in your solution. But your request as whole is not exactly easy...

Re: Need quick and east non-payment redirect for a single customer

There's src-mac-address matcher, so you can use that on directly connected router.

Re: Any plans for SD WAN?

i think what keeps being overlooked here is that unlike MPLS or an ELAN solution, SD-WAN has packets traversing two separate independent networks. At least it should be. It kind of defeats the purpose to carry it over an internet T1 and DSL if they both go back to the same switch and network. Assumi...

Right. SD WAN is going to be asked for and needed more and more. That was my point. Like you said, you already have three tunnels. But from what I could get from your explanation, they are tiered as basically failover. If one drops, the next picks up. But imagine having your three automatically rout...

Re: Any plans for SD WAN?

A true WAN isn't really "software designed". When you have multiple buildings, you could use ethernet if all the buildings are within about 300 ft. Then you have a WAN. Internet need not be part of it at all. If you go wider you could use dedicated leased fiber or dark fiber. It's physical connectiv...

Re: Any plans for SD WAN?

A VPN only functions over a single connection. SD WAN is more robust. You can utilize multiple connections for instance and create a secure tunnel that sends packets over whichever has the least congestion at the moment. So for instance, you're a bank and your traffic to the banking server over a VP...
