  • Step 4: By default, an interface will "connect as needed" as determined by priority, availability and configuration.
Other options include:
  • Standby: Standby will cause the interface to connect as soon as ready, but no data will be routed to the interface until it becomes active. This makes the interface more immediately available when an interface change is needed.
  • Always On: Always On will connect the interface and leave it connected. The interface is considered active and data may be routed to the interface at any time based on routing and firewall policies.
