Rerouting online backup traffic

Hi there,

I have the following setup. One server 2008 r2 with data and exchange2010. I use an online backup client to backup the data and exchange. Because backup using wan1 was to slow to keep up to date with all data changes for one day without using the complete bandwith available I ordered another wan2 from another provider. This wan2 is only needed and used for the online backup.

I have a draytek 2820 router with dual wan and all is working but both wan's interfering with each other making my mail not working and server unreachable.

Is there a way to have the online backup traffic running via wan2 and all other traffic (internet, mail, everything) via wan1.

Please advice.

Kind regards,
Bram

have a look on this YouTube link and see if it is any help, they try to do the reverse of what you need but the principal should be the same

Hello Luffa,

If you know or can find out the IP address(es) used by your online backup provider then you can add routes to your router that will direct traffic destine for the online backup through the second WAN.

I can not say if this can be done on your router or not as I have never used a draytek.

I'm the hoster of the backupsolution myself so yes, I know the ipaddress ;-)
But you have to do this via "route add" right? Or is there another way?

Yes via route add, if you are doing this on multiple computers you can do it via a startup script and maybe even by group policy, though I have never looked into adding routes with group policy.
