IPCOP with 2 Red interfaces

Posted on 2007-12-05

I currently run a small network with IPCOP and COP Filter, and use the IPCop VPN to remote offices also running IPCOP Boxes.

I want to set my head office ip cop box up with 2 red NIC's - (2 internet links, 1 x PPPOE, 1 x Realworld IP).

I then want to configure the box to send all traffic except IPSEC and VOIP down the  Real world Link.

Any suggestions on how to do this one?

You should be able to configure just one of the red interfaces to do the IPSec tunnel, after that, the firewall itself should take care of the routing tables so that if a user is requesting an IP address on the other end of the IPSec tunnel it would send it down that pipe. At the very least, you could just add a static route to the firewall to direct IPSec traffic down the IPSec tunnel.

In IPcop, you will be creating the IPSec tunnel ON one of the two red interfaces. The traffic going out and coming in the IPSec tunnel will have no choice but to go out the only tunnel that has the IPSec tunnel on it, therefor it will be going out whatever ISP you plug into that red interface.
