Two ISP's, Higher bandwidth?
At the moment I have two separate ISP's until I decide which one I want to keep. I might keep both for a while if I can get this set up working.
What I'm looking to do is set up some kind of load sharing server that will add the bandwidth of both ISP's into one line on my home LAN.
I know it's possible to do load balancing, but that won't increase bandwidth. I emailed the sys admin at one of my ISP's and he told me it is possible to do what I'm talking about. That it takes a combination between NAT and DNS and that commercial services such as Fatpipe use this. He said it is easier if both connections go back to the same ISP but they don't have to. It is possible to do something like this in a home brew setup.
So I guess I am really just looking to see if anyone can provide me with some more info since my sys admin is pretty busy, I don't want to bug him.
I have several older PII and PIII type computers around that can be setup as small servers.
Any info or help on what this type of setup is called, how to do this, what I need, what to google for, would be greatly received.
Also, I am more familiar with Fedora so setting this up with that distro would be better but I am open to using any distro.
Thanks a bunch.
