MultiWAN redundant link setup


momo posts: 362 3 stars user offline Australia
Hey gang long time no chat,

I was asking if Rip new of any opensource package, projects etc regarding MultiWAN links.

As we both found there was only really proprietry packages available I thought if we could start a project. (still looking)

I was thinking on the lines of a virtual and physical linux box with a ADSL/2 line and a 3G connection.

For the school I work at we want to possible move away from 2mbit fibre plan (cost the earth in ties and excess data, stupid telstra horders) and maybe get like 4 ADSL2 lines in, load balance and work along side with dialip access.

From the load balancing side of things there is a bit of doco so shouldn't be too much problems.

Rip forwarded this link to me http://andrewbevitt.com/tutorials/linux-multiwan-router/

Would any of you be interested in starting something like this? I ask because it has been some time since playing with IPTables and think would be benificial for all and extend it to home solution.

Can you post your thoughts or links you may know of :)

Cheers,

MOMO

Gday Momo,

I haven't really had much exposer to multi-wan setups. Also don't have an adequate test environment at the moment (only one link to my place).

There should be plenty of resources available on the net for this, as I am pretty sure it can be achieved with Traffic Control and Iptables in Linux.

Happy to help if you get stuck.

The technological advancement that resulted in the establishment of Internet communication has impact on all aspects of working life. The need for reliable and redundant internet connectivity on the end user side has resulted in such a technique called “Multi-homing” which is a configuration of several network interfaces/IP addresses in customer premise equipment. A single network channel has proved to be less advantageous than the multiple connections. This is because multiple connections work based on different network segments thereby proving to be more reliability than the single network channel. Multiple network connectivity depends on various service providers available at your location. A host that holds multiple IP addresses and has physical connectivity to multiple data networks is called a Multi-homed server or a Multi-homed computer, this act like a router or gateway device.
