ISA 2006 with 2 DSL connections?

I have ISA 06 with 1 external connection. I want to add another DSL connection to this box so I can have my Email going out 1 connection, and all other traffic out the other. How would I do this?

Hi there,

ISA doesnt support multipul gateways so you wont be able to do this exactly. There are workarounds however such as using a dual wan router is cisco 1812 that would allow you to run network load balancing (NLB) on 2 lines.

This is also a benifit as you could use both lines all the time for better overall bandwith leaving the network. As far as incoming goes. You would have 2 conenctions (Obviously..) but could setup 2 MX records for your different IP's in which case if one provider connection was to fail you would have your 2nd to receive.

Regards
Steve
