Configuring Exchange for Fortigate 40c firewall with dual internet connections
Posted on 2014-01-03
We have a fortigate 40c firewall connected to Charter Business (WAN1) and TDS (WAN2) ISP's. While we purchased the TDS for a backup connection, it seems silly to pay for it and have it sit idle... I was hoping to configure it for load balanced Internet connection.
I set up the balancing in the firewall based on fortigate documentation and our email stopped sending. I assumed it would use the policies created for WAN1 and use that path for sending emails, but it looks like I assumed incorrectly.
Do any of you know how I can keep both connections weighted equally and either give mail both routing options or force mail to only use WAN1 for it's path?
Thank you for your help!!!
