Using 2 internet connections for one network

Tue Jan 30, 2007 5:43 pm

Hello all,

I was wondering if it was possible to do some serious routing in Mikrotik to allow me use 2 internet connections for one network, but one to handle downlink only and other uplink only? Lets say my outgoing will be one provider using 62.*.*.* and my incoming will be 81.*.*.*? It sounds kinda impossible to me :D , but I want the gurus to tell me that :D

Any suggestions?

Why would you want to do that? When your user connects to some remote server, you actually don't know if he wants to (mainly) download something or (mainly) upload something. And control packets has to go the same route as data packets, so this seems to be preety much impossible :)

You can use either load balancing or policy routing on multiple gateways.
