Hi,

Link means, related to WAN or talking about internal link. If it's WAN link , yes it possible. U should provide information like

a. r u using BGP for Internet Traffic

b. or using Just static Entry

c. Is F/w are located at same LAN

Depanding on this, yes there is soln for all the three options.

Yes, the previous message was correct. You can use ibgp or static routes with (alternating if you want load balancing too) different costs to the firewalls.

ip route .....fwa 5

ip route .....fwB 7

on the other

ip route ..... fwB 5

ip route ..... fwB 7

This is easier than bgp if you have not done that and also it works well if you offload the bgp stuff with static routes to your isp. Hope I am making sense.

Do you know any board here for IP Routing, Switching, and Remote Accessing?

Thanks.
