I am unclear about the behavior of the Failover Monitor. What condition has be met that a gateway is seen as not available:
– Do all three failover IPs have to be down on the gateway ?

Yes, that is why are 3 and not 1, to make sure that if one of them is down ZS will not consider the connection as dead.

It doesn’t really matter, if the other Failover IP addresses are up and reply at the test, the module considers the interface as ok.

thanks for any help, Mark

Not sure about that, most likely it will consider the gateways as down.
