Multiple ipsec VPN as backup for MPLS

Hi

i have MPLS link as a wan interface (its connect me to more than 20 branches )

i have used the following article to configure IPSEC VPN as a backup for MPLS 

https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123323#VPN%20Link%20as%20a%20Backup%20for%20MPLS%20Link

but i can only create 1 IPSEC as a backup

can i add multiple lines?

like 

system link_failover add primarylink Port2 backuplink vpn tunnel Branch1 monitor PING host 10.16.1.1

system link_failover add primarylink Port2 backuplink vpn tunnel Branch2 monitor PING host 10.16.2.1

system link_failover add primarylink Port2 backuplink vpn tunnel Branch3 monitor PING host 10.16.3.1

 

Firmware Version: 17.0.8 ( i can't upgrade the firmware for the moment )

  • Hi MMASLOUH,

    I think you should be able to add multiple IPsec VPN connection as a backup for your MPLS link. When you say you could only add one as a backup, are you getting any error or issues? 

    Thanks,

    V17.0 will have other issues. I am not sure. Maybe you run into a Bug or something like that.

    I highly recommend to upgrade the firmware.

    I will check with an updated device.

    MMASLOUH,

    are you sure the port and the ipsec tunnel are correct?

    Is the ip a remote host ip?

    Thanks
