Disable/Enable LAN port on WAN failover
I am trying to get some internet redundancy using two home ISP subscriptions, each one served through different media.
Since there are no fancy routing protocols running, on WAN failover, I expect that all connections will need to be re-established, because the source IP has changed.
The machines on the LAN won’t know that a failover has happened and will try to keep an invalid connection running until the apps timeout.
I’d like to force the clients to re-establish a connection. The switch I’m using has an API I could play with. Would disabling/enabling the affected LAN ports on WAN failover be a good idea, or would it be overkill?
Also on the Wi-Fi side, I could disable/re-enable the SSID, forcing all stations to reconnect to the AP.
