I have a Cisco PIX 515E running version 6.3(4). It has three ethernet interfaces. Is it possible to have two WAN connections coming in through it with one LAN connection? For example.


eth0 - public IP address (ISP #1)

eth1 - public IP address (ISP #2)

eth2 - local IP address (192.168.x.x)


Let me know.

  • Cisco Employee,

you cant load balance on PIX. It is preferable to use a router to connect your ISPs.


otherwise you have to manually route half traffic through one link and other half throgh next.


also if packets leaves ISP1 and comes back through ISP2, PIX will discard it.


thanks
