Mutihoming with one Ethernet interface
Authored by: jdmuys on Jun 10, '09 07:02:26AM

I have a similar need, but I don't need failover, I need protocol-based traffic splitting (or possibly IP-based).

In details: I want some protocols to be handled through one network interface (eg http), and other ones through another (eg ssh, irc, ftp).

I found one possible way, but it's not protocol based, it's IP-based: using the route terminal command.

So is it possible to route some protocols through an interface, some others through a different one (and the rest through the default one)?

If not, using IP-based routing is a possibly working scenario for us. Is there a nicer to configure it than through the terminal? I found IP Net Router which seems to be able to do so, but it's very complex.
