Greetings:

 

I have two ADSL WAN connections going into a TP-R470T+ load balancing router. From there, I have one desktop, one security camera system, and one Cisco WiFi router, connected to each of the LAN ports.

 

Prior to having the second ISP connected (yesterday), my FTP client (FireFTP) was working fine. Since adding the second ISP, my FTP client will not connect to my seed box. It will, however, connect to some other accounts I have. So, I am not really sure what the issue is here, or how to correct it. Is there a setting on the router I can change, that will allow the FTP client to access all my accounts? 

More importantly, what could possibly have changed, from the time I connected the second ISP to the router, to cause this issue? 

Thanks for any assistance you may provide.

First, thanks for the reply.

Subnet Mask? Yes. They are the same.
 

what type of load balancing did you configure?

 
Well, neither option was ticked in this window. I get the best speeds (combined) if I leave both unticked. That is, when I test the connection, I get the combined total of both ISPs, which is about 15 megabits down, about 2.5 Megabits up.

Subnet refers to the ip addresses not the subnet mask. 78.67.89.34 is a ip address in a subnet.  255.255.0.0 is a subnet mask.

Are the wan port subnets different?

 

If you enable balance routing do you still have the issue?

Each modem has a different IP address, yes. 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1. The LB router is 192.168.0.1 Of 5 ports on the router, two are WAN, three are LAN. No matter what combination of boxes I tick (regarding the options shown in the attachment above), it still doesn't connect completely. 

 

This is just one heck of a headache for me, for sure.

Those are routers not modems.  Usually you want your load balancer to have the public ips not private ones.  It doesn't help having nat devices between it and the internet.

 

To clarify are you connecting to your seedbox via the lan or via the internet as from the outside internet to inside your lan?

Well, they are modem / routers. TP Link models, actually. In fact, the LB router is as well. They go to the WAN inputs of the LB router.

I am connecting - or attempting to connect, to my seedbox that is located in another country, via the internet.

 

 

 

I appreciate your patience with me. Not sure what NAT means?

I finally decided to try something here. 

 

If I turn either of the modem / routers off, but leave the other on, the FTP client connects. If, however, I turn both on, it will not. 

 

Does that help?

Sounds like it is trying to go out one interface and come back in the other would be my guess.  There should be a way to configure that prevents this from happening.  Might want to consult the tech docs or post a question in the manufacturers forums to see if they have a answer.

Thanks, I will try that. 

 

How I wish I had that old D-Link back again.

I think its the public IPs creating problem.....

Some sites bind a user login to one IP till a predefined time expires/user signs out. Sort of security...

eg: In our community, assume you login, open a page  and wait for few minutes, then connect your machine via a new network / allow your modem to get a new IP from your ISP, then refresh the page of community, you'll be signed out and asked to login again.

Thanks for the input,  CV.

 

Yeah, I use IPB as well, for two forums I run. While I do not get logged out of the forum, if the IP changes, I do get logged out if it does when I am in the control panel.
