two broadband connections
Posted on 2010-08-24
user has two modems attached to a Sonicwall TZ 180W. One is a DSL with five static IP address. The other is a cable modem with a dynamic ip. Right now I have the Sonicwall using the cable modem as the main internet connection because it is much faster. The DSL is just there for failover.
The DSL is also being used for its static IP address. A domain name is associated with that IP for remote access to the server and for email.
The DSL modem went out yesterday and the user was unable to contact his email or remote into the server.
The server is running Microsoft SBS 2003.
I would like him to be able to still access it if either one of the connections go down.
I recommended getting a static to dynamic IP address through NoIP or another service. Is this the best option and would this work well, or is there another, better option?
