Dual ISP with load balancing

We have a VM-200 firewall. We use this as our guest firewall.

 

We wish to load balance all traffic between two ISPs, both 200Mbps down/40Mpbs up. We have one /19 subnet for all clients.

 

Please let us know if we can do this with the firewall, or do we need an external load balancing device.

 

Thank you,

Hello,

This is possible with ECMP.

I would suggest however that you segregate the guest network away from your clients, perhaps in a different subnet and/or zone.

 

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks! Your links solved the issue.

 

This firewall only services guests. It is physically and logically seperated from our business production network.
