To make Internet connection from 2 ISP's available to a workstation.
sureshmanne Feb-16-01 08:12 AM
I have internet connections from two ISP's say ISP-1 and ISP-2. The connections from ISP-1 and ISP-2 lands in my switch and is available in the LAN. I can make use of each line by assigning the set of IP addresses that particular ISP has given to the workstations.
Now I want to add the bandwidths and by assigning an IP address to a workstation it should automatically route its request depending on the traffic. What software or hardware should be used. I have servers with MS Back Office server readily available.
Could you help me out in this regard?

Both of them are 64kbps leased lines

I would sure look into replacing those lines with a cable MODEM or DSL connection if possible in your location. Multilinking and Multihoming might be options for combining the bandwidth of the lease lines. To read-up on them look in the Windows Resource Kit On Line (http://duxcw.com/faq/network/helpdoc.htm) and search with “multilink” and “multihoming” without the “”. Larry
