One Router, Two ISPs and SMTP name

Discussion in 'Network Routers' started by John F Kappler, Jan 14, 2008.

  1. I'm trying to plan for a transition to a new location and the current
    location has two ADSL lines connecting to a Draytek load balancing
    router.

    Whilst the ADSL lines are being moved to new landline numbers, we
    intend to use a 3G modem for the router.

    However, its quite likely traffic will be heavy so it may be that we
    will have one ADSl line (to ISP A) as well as the 3G modem to ISP B
    both active on the router at the same time.

    My question is, how do I ensure our server is sending mail to the
    correct SMTP server?

    TIA,

  2. The WAN ports must each have an IP address, right? Since it's a "router",
    add a static route from the LAN side to the appropriate WAN port for the
    server. Depends on the router....
