RED: Restart tunnel instead of unit

When the internet connection drops at the main site (UTM location) the RED restarts to get the tunnel up again. When (for some reason) the internet connection stays down at the main site all internet activities at the remote location are down due to continuous restarts of the RED. If the RED only tries to pick up the tunnel, the internet at the remote location can still be used.

        I thought that the RED was a "fail closed" device which means that if in split mode the tunnel goes down, the RED will no longer forward *any* traffic. If so, that makes this moot.

        Are You using RED50? We had problems with RED50 restarts we were talking to support. We recieved hotfixes to greatly reduce restart time, I imagine they will be released some time soon. Also, do You have AP5 usb wifi plugged into RED? This caused problems as well.

        This is a must have. Rebooting the device is not a option when uses as default gateway for the local LAN. All clients are losing their connection to internet until the problem on the utm location is solved…
