Network Load Balance - newbie questions
Sorry if this is in wrong place, also I have tried to search the forum for the answers to the following questions but with no luck.
I am newbie when it comes to Linux, but generally understand the concepts, I do however need some information as to load balance 2 internet connections. I am looking for something basic to do this.
This is what I would like to do:
I use a works program from home which uses SSL and port number of 563, this downloads test data and large video images, so it uses all my bandwidth.
I would like the above to go use my main internet connection, and then any other internet traffic to use my spare connection.
I did try and find a basic solution to do this in windows xp pro, but to no avail (sorry for swearing) I am understanding that load balancing two connections in Linux is the solution to doing this.
This leads me onto the following questions:
01) Will Fedora workstation 11 fulfill my needs? as fedora is the main version of Linux I have used since redhat 6, many mnay moons ago
02) what program will I need to install and configure?
03) Hardware issue question: The machine I will want to use has 3 networks cards in it, one built onto the motherboard, and two cards I have put in myself.
I was thinking each modem connection to each one of the seperate network cards I out in the pc, and running a wireless router from the onboard network card which has the swtich and wireless access point for my other equipment to connect to..
Would this be the best way to connect it all up?
Sorry if this is a noobish post, but I am at a lost as to where to begin with it
