Hi all! I am newbie with Mikrotik but i think that´s going to change soon
I am trying to give a solution to the problem in title. I have two routers with a WAN connection each (principal and backup) in the same network segment. I used to configure HSRP and interface tracking to decrease priority in case of WAN interface goes down with Cisco Equipment. I don´t find similar configuration for VRRP in Mikrotik, but I've read some interesting ideas that seems to be accepted as solution: VRRP (for router redundancy) and OSPF (for WAN redundancy) but I have problems with it. I will try to explain.
In normal operation, if VRRP master router becomes unreachable, the other one become master and backup WAN will be used. Perfect.
Now imagine main WAN connection goes down (PPPoE in my case), as we have configured OSPF interface with lower priority on the other router, backup connection will be used and the problem is solved. Here is my problem: clients will still working against Master VRRP router and this one will redirect traffic to se secondary one thanks to OSPF routes, so we can think it´s Ok, but traffic from WAN is not going to follow the same path because it will go trough backup ruter to client causing assymetric routing and this could be a problem, don´t you think???
Thank you in advnace.
