Redundant Internet Connections (Video)

In this video you will learn how to create a virtual Wide Area Network link that provides your FortiGate unit with redundant Internet connections from two Internet Service Providers or ISPs. The virtual WAN link combines both connections into a single interface.

This example uses weighted load balancing set up so that one primary ISP handles most of your Internet traffic, and the secondary ISP provides automatic failover if your primary ISP connection fails.

The recipe for this video is available here.

    Kayla, thanks for the video. The problem I’m having is that the WAN2 connection will come up for about 5 seconds, then go down. I will disable it, re-enable it, and the same thing happens. If you can help or refer me to somebody who can, I’d appreciate it.
