Netgear FVX538

Have a FVX539 Netgear firewall that I have configured with load balancing:

DSL connection on WAN1 and Time Warner Cable connection on WAN2.

When I use Load Balancing I am sharing a 5MB and 3MB connection resulting in faster Internet access speeds.

However I am faced with a dilemma, I have a manager that logs into a
secure website to access patient records, and for some reason the software
will not allow him to connect properly when load balancing is enabled. I can disable and it works fine. Is there a way to only allow access to that website
through WAN2 only ? Without using the Http/Https services, Becuse I don't want
to block everyone from using the load balancing , but rather this one site.

Thanks

If the user access a specific website, and it by chance uses a specific port then you can restrict ports to a particular WAN link using a NAT rule. If it is just port 443 (SSL) then the worst case would be to route all SSL through the single port but this would reduce you overall load balancing and resilience.

Maybe a NAT rule for the specific end point IP address would work also?

Just some thoughts. Don't have a Prosafe 200 near by to test I'm afraid. Also, it may make a difference if your firewall is v1 or v2 (there have been some mods in v2 that are not backward compatible).

Hope this helps
