Gateway Setting

By alexchan ·
Our company has two line, one is leased-line, another is point to point T1 line. We want to use leased-line for Internet browsing, T1 line is for access our application between two sites thought VPN. How to setup our client / network to use this twolines at the same time ? Now, I need to change the gateway IP before using T1 or leased-line.

Gateway Setting

Could always pop another router behind the two that are servicing the t1 and leased line. then configure the router to route incoming requests to the correct network. That way all clients would only point to this one gateway.
If this isnt possible,you could manually enter the route into the clients memory using the 'route' command from a command line.

Just type 'route', it will give you a list of the switches and syntax.

Hope this helps!

Each of the two lines has a router at each end. All of your machines should have their default gateway set to router for the leased line.

At this point you have two choices:

1. In all login scripts, include a ROUTE command adding a static route pointing at the t1 router for traffic going to each network on the other side of the t1.

2. Insert static routes into the leased-line router so that any traffic for the networks on the far side of the T1 is handed off to the T1 router.

Choice1 is actually preferred, since it does not require changes to the routers (which you may not be able to do yourself), and it reduces the number of "hops" by one for traffic going over the T1.

Good luck.
