Re: asa 5510 with dual isp

Hello

Normally for load-balancing on network devices PBR is used. I'm quoting from another of my posts on this forum:

The ASA/PIX does not support PBR to date. I've been told its on the roadmap.

As a work around, you could run multiple contexts, if its possible to break your lan subnets into two.

And also allocate the appropriate Internet interfaces to each context (with the default gateway pointing to the respective ISPs).

This link will get you started:

PLEASE NOTE: Dynamic Routing and VPNs are not supported in Multiple Context mode.

Another alternate, if the WAN links are terminated on a router (and not the firewall), you could use that router to do the PBR.

Hi Farrukh

Is PPPoE supported in Multiple Context Mode when each context has a physical WAN-port and a Trunk as LAN-port?

Thanks,

Re: asa 5510 with dual isp

I've found the info....

"PPPoE is not supported when failover is configured on the security appliance, or in multiple context or transparent mode. PPPoE is only supported in single, routed mode, without failover."
