how to configure 2 leased line connection, routes


Hi

I have a redhat AS4 box with 3 Ethernet cards and iptables running and two leased line connections coming to this box using RJ45 (in to two Ethernet cards)and the other one for the local LAN

this configuration is used to access VPN and internet using NAT and routing.

My question is

If for some case one link should fails (issue at ISP or some kind of line failure, how can I configure RedHat to route all the traffic through the working interface and when the failed interface comes online it should function normally.

Can some one guide me on this?

Thanks

Best regards
