Question Linux 2.4 Many to Many routing using IPROUTE


I'm trying to do a many to many routing scheme with my linux 2.4 box.

Basically, I have two ISP's which provide me with 8 IP addresses each.
The problem I need to solve is the 2 - 1 connection for a server, which will then scale up to multiple servers, each with their own 2 - 1 addresses.

I can get the router to work with a simple NAT using the LARC example (chapter 5 I believe) without a problem.

The 2 -1 connection for each server would look something like this:

64.x.x.101 & 66.x.x.201 point to a LAN address of
64.x.x.102 & 66.x.x.202 point to a LAN address of
64.x.x.103 & 66.x.x.203 point to a LAN address of
64.x.x.104 & 66.x.x.204 point to a LAN address of

My servers are all FreeBSD boxes, which are in full production. I can't change them right now for various reasons, so I'd like to do the routing on a router box.

I can't use Zebra, since neither of my ISP's support BGP.
I can't afford a Cisco solution right now either.

I've read all the theory stuff available on the Net about this, and can't seem to get this to work.

Has anybody done this before?
