Multiple pipes, single firewall?


Just want to know if it is possible with a Cisco ASA 5506 to connect 2 different outside internet circuits to its interfaces and configure (using NAT'ing and routing I am guessing) different kinds of traffic through the two.  Not the same kind of traffic through the two pipes at once, and nothing as elaborate as load balancing.  Just using one pipe for one thing and something else through the other.  Possible?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes it possible, you would need to static NAT/PAT the internal IP addresses, to the relevant external IP address but yes this is entirely possible. As you have pointed out the one thing you can't do is load balance, (before I'm corrected policy based NAT is coming but its still not load balancing).
