Here's my problem, I have a remote machine that has two links, one is
high bandwidth but has bad latency, the other has low bandwidth but good
I need two VPN tunnels running between these machines, but one over each
link as below. The reasons why are due to the traffic I need to push
over them, some is important but not high in volume, other is less
important but there's alot of it.
+-----------+ Link | |
| Machine 1 | -------------------+ | Machine 2
+-----------+ | |
My problem is that I can't seem to find a way around the need for
Machine 2 to have two default routes.
My understanding of my problem is that any time Machine 2 receives a
connection (irrespective of which link) it tries to respond over the
link that is the default route (for example Link1). This means that
whenever Link2 gets a connection, Link1 tries to respond for it.
Can anyone suggest a solution for this problem ? Do I not need multiple
default routes ? Do I misunderstand my problem ?
All help is appreciated as ever,
