Network Layout & Load Balancing Multiple Broadband Connections
Posted on 2011-10-19
There are two companies which wish to load balance their internet connections together so they can all utilise faster internet browsing and protect themselves from outages.
The problem is they are two separate networks with their own DNS and DHCP servers for the local network.
There is a product called a TP-Link TL-R470T+ Load Balance Broadband Router, if i purchased this item would i be able to achieve what i have put in the diagram.
The splitting the network into segments isnt so much of an issue but would the router mentioned above (the Load Balance Router) in the diagram attached be able to forward port traffic from ports 25, 80 etc (what ever port specified) on the red connection to the red server and the port forwarding from the blue connection to the blue server.
Basically, if the port 25 traffic comes from router 1, will the load balance be good enough to know that it should forward it to domain1 server, and the same with router2 and domain2 server?
Thanks for your help!
