HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]

Detailed description on your requirment:

Per Packet Load Balancing:

>> Will not work

Per destination based Load Balancing:

>> May work, if you are accessing some specific application like ftp, vpn access over Internet to some destinations.

Multilink Option:

Since the Link are purchased from two different ISP, will not be possible.

Available Option:

If you have owned an AS, with multiple LAN Segments means:

>> Each Segment can be destined to different ISP's using "per destination load balancing Concept"

Enable per-destination load Balancing:


Router(config)# hw-module slotnumber ip load-sharing per-destination

>> Disables per-packet and re-enables per-destination load balancing.


Best Regards,

Guru Prasad R
