USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

I just got my USG adopted and working right. I would like to use the extra port, VOIP PORT for fail over to my exede satellite connection. It has a router of its own so my USG will get a natted IP no big deal to me as port forwarding isn't needed on such a poor connection. I just would like the functionality of the auto FAILOVER. Can this be done?

Yup this can be done under Settings -> Site, you have to enable port remapping, after that you can in your router config select the second one.

Having issues with mine still. When my Wan1 fails I have to unplug Wan 1 cable to get failover. Many others are reporting the same.

Re: USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

Running the latest cloud key supports. Upgraded 4 times now in hopes it would fix the provlem. I am using cloud key so my releases are limited. I can not run betas. My wan 2 is exede sat I very rarely need it so its not a deal breaker. My initial experence with the device was very negitive, provisioning iasues. Hind site I would have chosen a diffrent router honestly. Mikrotik or something of the sorts. Ubiquiti makes great products including this one but I feel like I bought a product with expectations that were not met. I will say this is the only ubiquiti product I am unhappy with. I have bought over 1000 of their products as a wisp.

You can use the cloudkey with beta releases. Just have to install the controller with putty over SSH.

I've have testet the failover with 5.6.3 controller successfully. But I don't need it regularly. Therefore I removed my Mobile LTE Router after the testing.

 

The latest unstable controller 5.6.4 is not available any more in the beta forum.

 

Try the stable candidate 5.5.11. They've made some changes about the USG load balancing. Not sure if this helps for failover to:

Re: USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

Can someone explain me, if internet bihind WAN1 fails, how should USG detect this? Over some bacground ping, IP SLA or are we talking about simple interface state (UP/DOWN) triggerst for failover?

 

Basicaly what event should trigger WAN1 to failover to WAN2?

Re: USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

Should be a ping so I have been told back to UBNT servers but for some reason mine will not switch unless I unplug. Odd behavior.

This weekend on the USG Pro 4 I had the same issue where Wan 1 had an outage and it didn't fail over to Wan 2 until Wan 1 was unplugged.

Are these settings still necessary in Unifi?

Re: USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

For example: 

LAN-to-LAN Exclusion,  Port Forwarding,

Making sessions stay with the same WAN

 

settings are still necessary? Or they are configured automatically in Unifi?

Man Sad Not really a good solution if a client has invested in the USG. Thanks for the reply. Hoping @UBNT-cmb  can get this working soon.

Re: USG 3 PORT VOIP PORT WAN 2 FAILOVER?

Agree! It still seems to only failover when WAN1 is disconnected.

Hoping for a fix from UBNT
