ASA 5510 Simultaneous ISP's

Answered Question
Jan 21st, 2010

Hi


I am nearly sure of this answer already but I just hoped somebody could confirm this.


I have an ASA 5510 with one ISP connection. We are getting in a second connection (mainly for redundancy purposes) but the question was raised about whether or not you can have two WAN connections with different ISP's running side by side?


For example - Company internet traffic going via ISP one and External Site VPN's coming through ISP two.


Thanks in advance

You cannot. The ASA/PIX currently does not support dual ISPs or PBR.  You need another layer 3 device (router) to do PBR to accomplish this.
