Equal cost load balancing via EIGRP on PIX 8 inside
I have a 515E running 8.0(3). The PIX is sitting in a colo and I have a bridged DSL circuit running from my office (which is in another building a few kilometers away) to the inside interface of the PIX. This all works fine and dandy, but now I want to turn up a second bridged DSL circuit to double up the bandwidth between the office and the colo.
2 questions -
1) If the PIX does equal cost load balancing, is it per-packet or per-destination (hopefully the former!)
2) Assuming it will, are there any caveats to doing things this way with regards to NATing from 2 inside interfaces to one global, even if I turn of ip verify reverse-path on the two inside interfaces (vlans)?
Here are the config snippets for what I'm trying to do (except the second office circuit doesn't quite exist yet):
Re: Equal cost load balancing via EIGRP on PIX 8 inside
It certainly helps, but it's not the answer I was looking for ;) I was hoping for per-packet. Per-packet would allow me to use the aggregate bandwidth of my two connections if I were trying to do something that could make use of such a large amount of bandwidth, say transferring a large file, where as the flow based "load balancing" will not use the aggregate bandwidth for that same task :(
