Two ISP routers

Hello there,

I have PIX 515 with 8 ports installed, I’ve already used 5 ports for DMZ configurations. I have an ISP router that connect the outside interface of the PIX. Everything works fine. I’m planning on adding additional ISP router dedicated to creating a VPN tunnel with a vendor. I don’t want to use the existing ISP router that the users use to browse the Internet. The new ISP router will be configured with 3 T1 lines. I will be terminating the tunnel on the VPN 3000 concentrator. The question is, There is only one outside interface on the PIX. The question is how do configure the PIX so it is a ware of the new ISP router. Do I use one of the remaining ports as an outside interface? I’m not really sure how to go about that,

Re: Two ISP routers

Use one of the other ports, but it won't be another "outside". There can only be one outside. Just setup another port as another dmz and use a static route. So if the remote vpn is (for example), so a static route on the PIX of "ip route DMZVPN x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the IP of the new ISP router. You won't be able to do another default route, but you can statically route to the IP you need.
