2 NICs, 2 ISPs, 1 Linux Box


Political User
I have the hardware stated above. I was wondering if if there is anything on Linux that would allow me to use both connections simultaneously and boost my overall bandwidth.


Political User
What you want is for multiple WAN's. PFSense has support for this out of the box. It can also be done by hand using FreeBSD/OpenBSD using the pf firewall.

I have not heard about doing this on Linux.


Political User
PFSense seems to be a distribution on it's own. I've read about NIC bonding so we'll see how that turns out.


Political User
Just thought I'd let everyone know that NIC bonding works like a charm. Now I just need to figure out how to get routing for traffic within the network to route through eth0 instead of using the bonded network interface which half the time with round robin mode, things get routed outside the network then back in.

I know that ... but why would I want to buy new hardware when all I want to do was do this on a single machine and I already had the hardware for it?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
