Load Balancing ASA 5505

Unanswered Question

Does the SAS 5505 support this:

In order to 'upgrade' the ISP's upload speed (800k) is it feasable to just install a second modem (with second line and fixed IP of course)and load balance? or maybe connect VPN from 2 branch office on one and another on the other one?

I have read somewhere on the net that using a switch to interconnect modems and the ASA and add the routes to the ASA...


I have this problem too.

It isn't supported, because the 2 ISP with 2 different IP address isn't supported. If you want to create load balancing between two ASA, the requirements for it:

- The ASAs inside and outside interface must be in same subnet.

- the Isakmp must be enable on both interface, because the ASAs communicating each other with isakmp keepalive traffic.
