    It would be great if we could redirect specific apps using PBR. Ex: Netflix via VPN1, and Amazon via VPN2, etc

    I’m looking at a policy that routes based on what wan is less latent, is that possible? Peplink has this but everything else has me convinced firewalla is the better choice

    @sukumar, the VPN redirection can be done on 1.972.  

    @John, latency based routing is possible; Is the problem you are facing the ISP is getting congested?

    I have two LTE connections, one has much more throughput, but worse latency, I’d like to have gaming/remote work go through the less latent path, and video to go over the other connection, and fail over still functional, I see some vendors have “lowest latency” which tracks on the 2nd/3rd hop, and the other, (and preferable) is “fastest response time” this would be ideal, because it could choose the connection based quickest path, which may end up being the other link, I know persistence can be a issue, and would also consider using this for web browsing.

    @Sukumar, Hulu doesn't like Dual WAN so I used PBR to channel andy traffic to hulo.com to my WAN1. You should be able to do the same with Netflix.
