On the Interfaces & Routing > Uplink Monitoring > Actions tab you can define actions that will be automatically applied in case the uplink connection status changes. For example, you might want to disable an additional address when your uplink connection is down.
Note – It is always the first uplink that will be monitored.
To create a new action, do the following:
On the Actions tab, click New Action.
The dialog box Create New Action If Uplink Goes Offline opens.
Make the following settings:
Name: Enter a descriptive name for the action.
Type: Select the connection type for which you want to define an action.
- IPsec tunnel: Select this option from the drop-down list if you want to define an action for an IPsec tunnel.
- Additional address: Select this option from the drop-down list if you want to define an action for an additional address.
IPsec tunnel: (Only available with Type IPsec Tunnel.) If there are any IPsec tunnels defined, you can select one of them here. For more information, see Remote Access > IPsec.
Add. address: (Only available with Type Additional Address.) If there are any additional addresses defined, you can select one of them here. For more information, see Interfaces & Routing > Interfaces > Additional Addresses.
Action: You can either select Enable or Disable here, which means that, in case of an uplink interruption, the above selected IPsec tunnel or additional address is going to be enabled or disabled.
Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.
The action will be saved and applied in case the uplink connection is interrupted.
To either edit or delete an action, click the corresponding buttons.
