Linux Gateway


I am attempting to build a linux gateway. I would like to use load balancing and have two ISP connections "bound" together. Not sure exactly how to bind the connections together, or set up the firewall.

I would like to use eth0 , and eth1 as ISP connections, and then on eth2 use a linksys wireless router to connect the other computers in the home to the network.

Could use some help on finding good tutorials.

well then... the two external interfaces just need to be bonded afaik: http://linux-ip.net/html/ether-bonding.html as you can see, ti's not too tricky. as for the internal stuff... why a router at all? I personally just use my router as a switch since I'm using IPcop as my actual reouter / default gateway. I dare say ipcop can do bonding as a core feature, but if not you can probably add it on yourself on the same system.
