SuSe 9.2 1 Switch 2 Routers w/PPPoE and 1 Massive Headache

I have a SuSe 9.2 Server that I want to run 2x100MB PPPoE connections from. I live in Japan and 100MB Fiber PPPoE is Relatively inexpensive ($80 USD/mo). I have 2 Routers that keep the PPPoE connection. Those hook into the Server on each NIC. The routers connect to a Fiber to Cat 5 Media converter via a Switch.
When both routers are enabled with their respective PPPoE connections I can surf fine on the web and can SSH and FTP out. I can not SSH/FTP into the box from the outside world. I can however do it from the internal network. As soon as I disable one of the NICs on the server I can SSH/FTP into it no problem. I assume this is a) a security mechanism withing SuSe. or b) A routing table issue. It is prolly a combination of both. I do not have a static IP. I cant figure out how to set up my routing tables. I want anyone who connects to be able to chose which one of my ISPs best suits them for their webserver uploads.


Both Routers on Subnet (

1) Is this possible?
2) If so, how do I set my routing tables if needed?
3) Thank You for any help provided!

Very Compfused
