RV082 VPN backup tunnel with domain name

RV082 VPN backup tunnel with domain name

RV082 VPN backup tunnel with domain name

We have 2 RV082's , one at the HQ with 1 internet connection WAN1, and the other at the branch office with 2 internet connections WAN1 And WAN2.

The HQ does not have a static IP only a domain name.

I have configured a Getway to Getway VPN tunnel successfully by selecting "IP By DNS Resolved" in the branch office router and entered the HQ domain name.

the tunnel is up and working OK when the WAN1 connection is up..

but we need the tunnel to switch to WAN2 when WAN1 fails,

I tried to create a new tunnel for WAN2 but there will be a routing conflict in the remote group policy (same Ip address).

I also tried to configure the "Tunnel Backup" under "Advanced" but had no luck , because I don't have a static ip for the remote getway only Domain Name..

Any one have an idea on how to configure a Backup VPN tunnel on my situation ?
