PIX and Multi Homing?

Hi I wonder is it possible to implement multi homing scenario? (I dont mean BGP's multi home,i use hulti homing as concept..)

Suppose that my customer has 3 different ISP and

he/she want to place a web server in a certain dmz interface and use one of the isp's only for web server's http access and use one of the dmz interfaces for another purpose via another isp and finally want to use outside interface via 3.rd ISP for his/her network's internet access.Is this possible.

I tried to simulate this stituation but when i want to add static route per interface basis for that i saw that i cant add static route with same metric.PIX doesnt allow..

Thanks in advance..

You'd want to set this up using routers and not the PIX. The PIX is an IP forwarder, not a router. It knows about and moves traffic between the networks locally connected to each interface.

I think you have to install a router in between the PIX and your multi-home connection routers. Let this central router distribute the traffic for you. Please pay attention of term -- policy routing. I think it is a help for you.
