2xSERVERS 4xNICS 2xVDSL LINES

I'm trying to increase my bandwidth by using a 2nd VDSL line.

Maybe Server#2 maps to a folder on Server#1 in LOCAL LAN and then users can connect to ftp2.server2.com so they are actually still downloading from Server#1

I currently have:

2 VDSL BOXES both 10M/2M speeds

SERVER#1 has NIC#1 connected to VDSL#1

Current FTP downloads are slowing down the system. How would you design the rest to work?


Here's my take:

Add additional NIC#2 to SERVER#1

Setup SERVER#2 and add NIC#1 and NIC#2

SERVER#2NIC#1 connects to VDSL#2
SERVER#2NIC#2 connects to SERVER#1NIC#2 (bridge between servers)

SERVER#2 maps to SERVER#1 FOLDER

Then just setup the FTP SERVER to allow users to download from the mapped folder from SERVER#1

Will this work?

Most likely yes, but let me provide an example (as per your previous question):

I used to have a cable and a DSL line at my home office.  I had one server acting as router on the DSL line and another on the Cable line.

The config went like this:

Server1:
  NIC1 (LAN)
    IP: 192.168.1.10
    GW: <blank>
  NIC 2 (DSL1)
    IP: 274.12.545.13 (non-sensical IP for example purposes; you would use a real, PUBLIC IP)
    GW: 274.12.545.1 (ISP provided gateway)

Server2:
  NIC1 (LAN)
    IP: 192.168.1.11
    GW: <blank>
  NIC 2 (DSL2)
    IP: 264.32.147.248 (non-sensical IP for example purposes; you would use a real, PUBLIC IP)
    GW: 264.32.147.254 (ISP provided gateway)

Now, the servers can talk to each other on the 192.168.1.x LAN but the internet access for one server is via DSL1 and the other its via DSL2.

So you can have Server 1 provide the same hosted files for both IPs, configuring the second server to access/"publish" those files on it via the local network.
