This is a great help !! I was suspecting a reset might be needed.
One question re the screenshot of the bindings.
I see that you also include a setting of 0.0.0.0 - 0.0.0.0
Can you explain why that is necessary?
Many thanks again !!
The 192.168.10.1 - 192.168.10.254 source IP address range was my LAN subnet.
The 0.0.0.0 - 0.0.0.0 destination IP address simply means all internet IP addresses. So any https session that originates on my LAN IP subnet was bound to WAN2 for all internet IP addresses. If WAN2 was down, then the RV082 would just ignore that protocol binding rule and use WAN1 instead.
The reason that the destination IP address range might need to specify a specific IP address (or range) is primarily if your two load balanced connections are from different ISPs. In that case, you may need to do separate protocol bindings for such things as SMTP and DNS if those services are only available when connected to that specific ISP.
I had to do that when I was using BellSouth and Covad in load balancing mode because the BellSouth SMTP server would not recognize a session coming from the Covad circuit, and the Covad DNS servers would not accept queries from the BellSouth circuit. If I were using my current Comcast/AT&T setup in load balancing mode, I would have to do the same thing, since the legacy bellsouth.net SMTP server would not accept Comcast sessions, and the Comcast DNS servers would not answer queries from an AT&T connection. By specifying the IP address(es) for the picky servers, they can be mapped to the appropriate WAN interface.
Another thing I used specific destination IP addresses for with protocol binding, was to force all connections from my LAN to Internet services hosted behind the RV082 (that would otherwise be automatically looped back internally), to actually go out one WAN port to the ISP, and then come back in from the Internet to the other WAN port. I did not always keep those particular rules active, but they were handy for making sure that a server was actually accessible from the Internet without having to physically make an external connection.--
