I live in a remote area in broadband terms. The service we now enjoy is beamed from the next hill and acceptable but we have no fall back connection. I do however have an ADSL copper connection which is available from a different ISP. This has a much lower bandwidth but would be available as a fallback option should the wireless link fail. Is there a wiki which would get me started with setting this up please. I am using an SG135 UTM.
I searched for a guide but didn't find what I needed.
Grateful for any pointers please.
Just wanted to apologise to you for making such a meal of this and to thank you for your help.
My problems were due to lack of know how on my part and a mis-configured router thanks to ISP.
That PC needs to have the Proxy CA from the UTM installed on it, Alaatair. You can download that in WebAdmin or via the User Portal. With a second WAN connection, you want Uplink Balancing enabled.

As usual I am finding this hard going. I was able to select the button on WebAdmin and download the certificate to my laptop. I was then able to go into Firefox an upload the certificate using settings security pages in Firefox. To be sure I rebooted but sadly when I then enabled the default GW on the AAISP port and the load balancing clicked in, I still could not access a website. This really shouldn't be this hard. Where next?
"Uplink" balancing is different from "load" balancing. The latter applies to inbound traffic that's load-balanced between two or more servers.
Show a few lines from the Web Filtering log where the traffic is blocked.
Bob I mistyped. I was referring to Uplink balancing.
I shall gladly share a few lines from the Web Filtering log when I know where to find them and copy them. All new stuff to me I regret.
Had to leave the second connection mid thread while trying to keep business running. Should have finished it as now I need the fallback connection to work and it doesn't. Please could I resume on this thread or should I start over.
With some additional help from Dirk and some time on phone with ISP I now have the basics sorted out and have two WAN connections. I therefore am closing this thread and thanks again,
