Multiple WAN links

Post by bomin » 2007/06/17 06:04:05

Hello, I got two Internet connections from different ISPs and I try to setup them on same machine (each link are behind routers). The problem is when I enable one of the link, the other is not working anymore and vice versa.

I add the following routes...

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth1 * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 eth0
default UG 0 0 0 eth0

What should I do?

Thanks for you're help.

You can only have one default route, one interface or the other.
You can set up static routes to use different routers for different sites.
