Simple WAN Failover

My internet went out and of course that is a nightmare if you are working from home. So I’m in the process of buying a cheaper / lower quality line to enable me to have fail over in case my primary line goes down again. Watch the video below to learn how to do this yourself.

About Mike

Michael Pruett, CISSP has a wide range of cyber-security and network engineering expertise. The plethora of vendors that resell hardware but have zero engineering knowledge resulting in the wrong hardware or configuration being deployed is a major pet peeve of Michael's. This site was started in an effort to spread information while providing the option of quality consulting services at a much lower price than Fortinet Professional Services. Owns PacketLlama.Com (Fortinet Hardware Sales) and Office Of The CISO, LLC (Cybersecurity consulting firm).

    Thanks Mike, nice video. And don’t get bored too much concalling from home šŸ˜‰
    Q about your remark in the beginning of the video: “don’t install 6.4”. Is that really still a no-go? I like to keep up with the latest GA versions šŸ˜‰

      I like to wait until the code has made it to revision 3 at the earliest but prefer 4 (so 6.4.4) before I push production environments up to that code. I despise downtime…especially if caused by bugs in code.
