    This feature has been in the system for a while. In the interest of good feature hygene, I’ll mark this as completed. HA failover is near instant, and stateful for non-proxied traffic, including VPN connections. (this should also have been the case when this feature was entered, however) If the failure is not the ethernet cable directly connected to the port, however, there will necessarily be some delay in detecting upstream failure, before the firewall can react.

        This is an important feature. Failover should be transparent to applications running over the WAN VPN link.

        This idea comes from our old SWL. They provide a zero downtime failover for WAN connection VPN and its really working! We changed from SWL to Astaro and I am really missing it! On a SWL failover we los max 2 pings. On our ASG320 failover there are more then 20! Both were and are now Active / Passive HA.
