Re: Two ISPs

You will likely get more eyes, and therefore more response in the SBS 2003 NG.

It is easier to use the public newsgroups in an NNTP newsreader, such as Windows Mail or Outlook Express.

Our company has two ISPs. (ISP A - ATX T-1 512 Bandwidth) (ISP B - DSL). I
would like to set them up for load balancing and backup. Our Exchange server
and VPN is configured with ISP A. ISP A also maintains our managed firewall.
We recieve Internet access through ISP A's router. ISP B we have just
contracted. I have tried to connecting it to a linksys router RV082 but the
systems seemed to get messed up and didn't understand what gateway to use.

My question is, can I take the ISP A Internet Connection and connect it to
SBS second network adapter. Then take the ISP B and connected it to
the RV082 for users to connect to our clients, and peruse the Internet. If
so is there anything special I need to do. We do have static IP’s from both

This is a short version of my configuration.
1. SBS2003R2
a. Two Nic’s
c. DNS
d. Exchange
e. VPN
f. Web Based Application

2. Citrix server

3. Web Server

4. ISP A – ATX Partial T-1 (512 KB)
a. Isp Controlled Firewall
5. ISP B – Verizon DSL
6. RV082 Linksys Router
7. Managed switch

All help is appreciated.

Thank you,

PS: This is my third try to post this question. If this is not the correct
post please let me know where I should post it.
