Routing with two WAN connections; I have a problem.
Posted on 2006-04-06
The story goes like this, I had an Internet T1 dropped into two office locations and a VPN between them for office traffic. This worked well when all the equipment was PC based. Then we went to Terminal Server and Thin Clients. The TS was in one office. So now, all TS traffic and internet traffic was sharing the same T1 in the main office. It was slow for web browsing, but not the office app, which is a terminal session to a unix server.
I decided ti bring in a high speed DSL line into the main office and setup my sonicwall tz170 at the main office to use the WAN port for the DSL and the OPT port for the T1; to have the Internet traffic go out to the WAN port and all VPN traffic go out the OPT port. This seems to be working... but it is slower than molasses, for both browsing and the terminal app.
I'm concerned that my routing is not set up right. I only understand enough to get myself in trouble so I am looking for some guidance on how to diagnose and resolve this.
Here is the routing table from the SW in the main office:
Destination Network Subnet Mask Gateway Address Destination Link
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 WAN
188.8.131.52 255.255.255.248 0.0.0.0 OPT
184.108.40.206 255.255.255.128 0.0.0.0 LAN
220.127.116.11 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 LAN
18.104.22.168 255.255.255.252 0.0.0.0 WAN
22.214.171.124 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 WAN
126.96.36.199 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 LAN/OPT
255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 LAN
I can provide any other info needed.
