Thanks in advance for your help!
I have a problem and Cisco can't seem to help me figure it out....
What I am trying to do:
1. Using two external T1 internet connections that come from two entirely different service providers.
2. Bind those T1’s together using the load balancing functionality of a Cisco RV082 dual WAN VPN router/gateway.
3. Place the RV082 in front of a Cisco ASA-5510 that is currently in place and managing DHCP, Firewall security, NAT configurations and PAT into a LAN of roughly 50 end users.
::this might help:: or it might just confuse…
--WAN-1 = 126.96.36.199 / 255.255.255.248
--WAN-2 = 188.8.131.52 / 255.255.255.240
-(Auto Load Balancing)
- Outside Interface === (currently bound to WAN-1 @ 184.108.40.206-)
-(NAT and PAT rules for various servers and services outside/in & inside/out are set and working between WAN1 -and the internal LAN)
- Inside Interface === (LAN -192.168.1.1-)
- Internal Network Servers and End User Workstations - 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254
- I have a wide span of external IP addresses that NAT or PAT through the ASA-5510 to private IP's of different web servers and FTP servers.
In 7 months the contract for the WAN-1 service provider is ending. We brought the connection for WAN-2 in to prep for that contract end date and to take advantage of a really good price.
I really want to increase our speed around here. Offloading some traffic heavy services like FTP to a different WAN away from but still internally accessible to my end users. I thought this was an easy solution and a fun project. Instead it's turned into a mess!
If the above is just some crazy dream of mine that only makes sense to me please let me know.
I am open to any suggestions, besides giving up. ;)
