Dual WAN on a Fortigate 60

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have an older Fortigate 60 running 3.0 firmware. I would like to configure it to route all end user internet traffic (web surfing, videos, etc.) through WAN2...leaving WAN 1 to handle the traffic of our servers, IPSEC tunnels, etc.). Currently all external traffic goes through WAN1.

I connected WAN2 to a cable modem (after verifing it was working). I then created IP Ranges for the different computer classes in our office (Servers and Workstations). I then changed my original policy on Internal -> WAN1 to only include the Servers IP Range and created a new Internal -> WAN2 policy that allows all traffic from the Workstations IP Range to ALL. I then added a Static Route (10) for the WAN2 default gateway. After making these changes only the Servers could reach the internet. The workstations couldn't.

Any ideas what is wrong? Am I going about this the wrong way?
