I have two ISPs, one static and one PPPoE. I use VyOS.

I did the configuration with two static IP providers but when it comes to PPPoE I don't know what to write as the next hop for the interface health.

interface-health pppoe0 {
        failure-count 1
        nexthop ???
        success-count 1
        test 10 {
            resp-time 5
            target 8.8.8.8
            ttl-limit 1
            type ping
        }
    }

Is the next hop of a PPPoE connection always the same or it can change once disconnected and connected again?

Thank you!

  • Is it possible to define an egress interface rather than an IP address as the next hop?

  • No, as far as I know. Only a ping test through the next hop and a ttl test with an UDP packet also through the next hop

you can set next-hop as dhcp

set load-balancing wan interface-health pppoe1 nexthop dhcp
0

I hope this will help:

load-balancing {
    wan {
        flush-connections
        interface-health eth1 {
            failure-count 3
            nexthop <gatewayip>
            success-count 1
            test 10 {
                resp-time 5
                target 8.8.8.8
                ttl-limit 1
                type ping
            }
            test 20 {
                resp-time 5
                target 8.8.4.4
                ttl-limit 1
                type ping
            }
        }
        interface-health pppoe0 {
            failure-count 3
            nexthop <gatewayip>
            success-count 1
            test 10 {
                resp-time 5
                target <nameserverip>
                ttl-limit 1
                type ping
            }
            test 20 {
                resp-time 5
                target <nameserverip>
                ttl-limit 1
                type ping
            }
        }
