NAT/Default Route to TWO ISPs

Hi Experts,

I am having a strange requirement. actually I am not sure it is strange or not. I am hvaing ASA5510 with 8.4 sw version.

Currently one ISP is connected to it. It is working fine.

We have some servers that are directly connected to internet using another ISP connection. These srevers having public IP addresses configured on their LAN settings. I need to move these servers in to the DMZ zone.

When i connect it to the ASA's DMZ zone,servers will get internet through the first ISP that is already configured on ASA. But i need to NAT the DMZ servers with the IP address provided by the other ISP, which even not configured on ASA.

So what should i do? In short my requirement is

1) need to NAT the server with the IP address provided by another ISP

2) Also note that the default route is configured for  the first ISP only in ASA

so Do i need to configure another default route?

Do i need to make it with larger AD? So i do it will act as the secondary route only.

I need to make the ASA up and running for two ISP, and servers in the LAN should be able to NAT with the IPs of first ISP and ,the servers in the DMZ zone should be able to NAT with the public IP of the new ISP.

IS THIS POSSIBLE? please advice



Thanks and Regards, Vipin

the ASA doesn't do load-balancing so the only config with 2 default routes would be one with a floating backup route and the primary tracked with IP SLA.

It also doesn't support PBR so I think you can't do what you want unless you use a router upstream.
