    I'm curious if anyone knows if there's a way to bind specific machines to specific WAN ports, i.e. I have a machine whose traffic I only want to go in and out on WAN1 and never on WAN2. Any ideas? Thanks.

    In theory, one to one NAT can do it. But, I have no experience with this function.

    After a closer look it appears you can do it with "Protocol Binding" under System Management -> Dual-Wan. Since you can choose a specific local IP or IP range, I can set it to bind "All traffic" from the specific local IP to WAN1. After playing with it a bit it appears that the rules are in decending order of priority, though. For example, if I specify that all HTTP traffic should be bound to WAN2, and then specify All Traffic from should be bound to WAN1, it will still send all HTTP traffic from out of WAN2, but everything else from that IP out of WAN1. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.
