Separating upload & download [Linux]

By Ferdinand ·
Hi,

Currently, I have cable modem & dial up
connections to the Internet and I was thinking of setting up a Linux as a
gateway server in my home network.

But, the issue is .. is it feasible to set
up so whenever I want to download something from the net, I want the server to use the cable connection. But whenever I want to upload anything through my FTP server, I want to set it up so it uses the dial-up connection.

Anyone can give some clues / comments about
this ? Thanks

Fer

I suggest that you set up ipfw using ip masquerading on your gateway server connected to the cable modem. This should take care of all your upload/download/surf the web at high speed issues from all your computers on your home network...

Why areyou wanting to use the modem ?

I think using the modem for anything is nuts after you're running a cable modem, but... I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you have a valid reason.

What you'll need to do is set up everything normally, so that everything is masqedthrough the cable modem. Then set up a dialup so that it is working correctly. Then set a static route so that the FTP you are uploading to is routed through PPP0.
