Re: OSPF Backhauls This is how I had been doing it - The issue is even though the gateway is local the subnet is not necessarily routed to that router. So why I could access the router then in turn the device via ssh/telnet - I could not access the gui. It was not just an issue of when the link goes down but also taking the links down for spectrum scans etc. I try to make a habit of verifing my links from time to time. As I posted for those fighting this - I created a vlan interface on the router and set the management vlan on the ubnt then assigned a /30 so I have a /30 assigned to the routers for direct communication the a /30 assigned to a vlan on each end for access to the bridge. If I take the link down I just have to wait a couple seconds for the far side route to repropogate and then I can access both sides.
