What I am trying to do is to have a second connection to the Internet to use for FTP file transfers.
The main corporate router connects to the internet through a T1 connection. This router is owned by ATT so I would rather not make configuration changes to it.
Email, internet browsing, access to corporate servers will all go through the corporate router. Only FTP will go through the DSL connection.
Workstations from subnet 1 will need to access the DSL connection to send and receive FTP files.
What I wanted to do was to add a DSL line and a second router. This way the FTP transfers will have more bandwidth and will not slow down the corporate network.
Tell me if this makes sense:
Because you can only have one default gateway and therefore only one internet connection per subnet you need to put the second Internet connection on a separate subnet.
Workstation 2 will be on subnet 2 (DMZ) on the DSL router.
To make a file transfer from workstations on the main LAN you could do a remote desktop connection to workstation 2 which would do the actual file transfer.
Is there a simpler or more direct way to do this?
