Can you configure the ASA 5505 for Load Balancing Outbound traffic. I have 2 T1 connections and would like the 5505 to distribute outbound traffic between the 2 connections.

You should have your router that is terminating the T1's do the load balancing. You can configure GLBP to load balance on the ethernet side.

Hope that helps.

If you have a router on each t1, you can use ospf to load balance on the way out. Now, load balancing on the way in..... I believe that is taken care of by your ISP.

Yes you need a router.

You can create MLPPP on the router with one of the ethenet port connected to the cisco asa as outside interface.
