Looking at using a Balance 20/30 for this. I looked at a balance 305 I have with 5.x firmware didn’t see the option, I haven’t checked the other balance 305 with 6.1.x firmware yet.
I have an environment with 6-10 workstations, 3 servers, 3 NAS’. I’ll have 2 WAN connections and what I’d like to be able to do it set it up so all WAN requests go through WAN1, except for 2 workstations I want them to go through WAN2.
The main reason is the upload speed of the WAN connections is pathetic 0.8Mbps if I’m lucky so I want to dedicate 100% of the upload to one workstation that’s used in the morning and a different workstation that’s used in the evening. I’m trying to work with the ISP to see if they’ll do a custom tweak for me (default it’s 12.88Mbps down, 0.79Mbps up I’m hoping they’ll let me sacrifice some download on WAN2 and get say 7down 4 up).
I know I can do this using 2 off the shelf SOHO routers, and a combination of DHCP/static/etc to keep them on the same network but there’s other features in the Balance I’m looking at using.
What would be even more awesome is if I could put on a schedule of some sort so the above happens from 8:00am to 6:00pm and outside of those hours it goes back to the default load balancing.
