We have two ISPs set up for our client's firewall.
The main one is static, and the other backup is dynamic. My concern is that if the failover ISP is on dynamic, that could prevent us from remotely getting into the firewall to switch the failover to enable if the primary goes down—for cost reasons, our client wanted the second WAN set to disable.
Is there a failover rule to do to switch into the backup without going to have the main circuit go down?
Or do we need to request for a static IP for the back up?
