I host two different Wireless ISP's on my towers at the house. As a result, I have multiple WAN IP addresses and host three nodes here.
I recent got a Ubiquity dual-WAN router. I have the Ubiquity router set up for load-sharing. The other option is fail-over. With load sharing, I have increased bandwidth and seamless redundancy. With the understanding that I am not a networking guru, I have two questions:
1 - I can set up port-forwarding in the router for each WAN. If I operate a node on the LAN, can I use the same port-forwarding criteria on each WAN to achieve redundancy should one WAN fail?
- OR -
2 - Can I operate two nodes on the LAN, assuming each node has a unique static IP, with the port-forwarding set up such that WAN A points to Node 1 and WAN B points to node 2?
Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for any responses.
