    routing with 2 providers


    Hi all!

    I use a LINUX gateway/firewall with Shorewall, squid and 802.1Q for vlans trunking.

    Actually, i have only one internet box (192.168.254.254 LAN Side).

    For the needs of partner (VLAN3 network:192.168.33.0) who use our network, i must install an other internet access and an other internet box.

    Can i plug the 2 internet box and the eth0 interface of my gateway to a switch, and create some iptables rules that route packet from VLAN3 (192.168.33.0) in destination to "net" through the new internet box?

    Here, my Network interfaces (I only have 2 hardware ethernet interface):

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:26:B9:43:70:74

    hay jmercier, i hope you are well.

    Can i plug the 2 internet box and the eth0 interface of my gateway to a switch, and create some iptables rules that route packet from VLAN3 (192.168.33.0) in destination to "net" through the new internet box?
    If i am understanding this properly, You are asking if you can :

    GATEWAY-->SWITCH-->PC1 then, Route traffic to VLAN's threw Eth0 and Eth1.
    -->PC2

    Im finding it hard to understand what you are asking.

    If you are using 802.1Q wont you have to forward the Vlans threw the router not Linux,

    If you are asking if you can go SWITCH-->Router-->PC then no, becuase the router needs to do the packet forwarding desision for the WAN where as a switch does i for the LAN.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks
    Ben
