Remote Connecting to SBS2011

Hi All.

Our client has a checkpoint firewall box that gives him 2 broadband connections as a failover system and load balancing.

Is it possible to have a second entry point into RWW and RDC from a different URL pointing to the second fixed IP address?

At the moment they have a standard entry point of remote.abc.co.uk and this works well but this is obviously tied to a fixed IP of one of the broadband. We want to offer them a failover to the second Broadband (which has a different fixed IP address) and wondered if this was possible.

I can only see one way of setting up an SSL certificate and so wondered if this was the weak point and only possible with one Broadband.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards
Andy

Is there a way of routing port 443 from any incoming IP to the same server?  If so I think the worst that would happen if one used the second choice for remote access is a warning.  Phones would not like it, but serious work is not done on phones anyway.  

You should be able to test this with the second ip, as in https://ip-address/Remote/logon?ReturnUrl=%2fremote

We have discussed at length with checkpoint engineers and with the unit we have (Even though it is only 12 months old AND has provision for two BB connections, it is not possible to have the second BB connection provide an incoming route for RWW if the first BB connection goes down.

Doesn't figure for me as what they are really saying is that the unit provide failover for outgoing HTTP requests only :(

Shame... presumably the same is true for incoming email.  Yuck.   Thanks for sharing.

Low grade for my own answer as there is no real technical answer to this problem - i.e. it cant be done with the Hardware firewall that is available for the client.
