Dual Wan out one wan back in the other

Wed Oct 31, 2012 3:53 pm

hi,

I have a dual wan setup, I am needing to have my data users go out one WAN and come back in the other WAN. How do I accomplish this?

Are you trying to upload out one WAN and download in another?

You can't do that.

Why not? I've tested that years back with Linux and even on the MT - it is working just fine.
Just have the default gateway to point one ISP gateway and perform source NAT (not a plain masquerade rule) for your internal network with second ISP address. Packets will be sent out according to default gw and answers will come back from second WAN connection, because of the different source.

It may prove interesting for some network snooper to see only traffic going one direction....

Not trying to download/upload, more so go out WAN1 and come back in WAN2 to access a web gui of something that is on WAN2.

It sounds like you may need hairpin nat setup. Without having more info on your setup and even a diagram this is just a guess.
