Dear all

I've two leased lines(currently one active)both the links terminate to the ASA 5520.

I've configured 11 vlans in LAN.

now my question is.

as the netwrok is running smoothly with only one link active.

I got another leased line.

1. I need to make both the link as a back of each well as I've to use both the link for load baalncing.

2. I need to send all Admin and MAil(LOtus Notes)traffic to the 2nd leased line which is low bw, and all other traffic should be on first lease line.

if any of the line goes down all the traffic should ne forwarded to the available link.

please help me as I'm not too advance in such configuration.

You cannot do outbound load balancing on an ASA. You can only load balance inbound. You will need a router to get this done.

Hi thanks,

I just need to shift all email(Lotus Notes)and VPN(that's already configured and running) to the new 1MB link.

I've two leased lines one is 2MB(working)and another is 1MB(just installed) and both the router is directly connected to the ASA 5520

(Router 1 is connected to GE0/0 and Router 2 is to connect to GE0/2) and the ASA is connected to the Core switches.
