Splitting Traffic

Unanswered Question

I am working on a project of deploying a new AT&T new OPT-E-MAN CKT at one of our sites. This site comprises of company employees and contractors. I would like to know what would be the best way to allow contractors to use the same CKT but throw them to the Internet and not to our WAN? Simply put, how do I allow non-company individuals from using the WAN CKT but throw their traffic to the Internet?

Thanks in advance,

I assume by your comments that the Internet connection is local as are the contractors. In that case, setup a default route in your switch/router pointing to the internet.

If you have to use your WAN as the default, you can use Policy Based Routing to split the traffic.

normally, you need to use different IP subnet for staff and contractor. and you should set the default gateway of contractor/non-company staff IP to firewall, and let firewall to block them into your company WAN, and only allow to internet.
