Is it possible to have multiple interfaces connected to the internet at the same time on a KWF6? (for example 2 DSL on 2 NICs and a third NIC for the internal network)
I know that you can configure a "backup" connection if 1 is unavailable, but I would like to have 2 connections at the same time to have more bandwidth.

Yes, many of us would like to do this! Hopefully, Kerio will add this functionality soon. Rolling Eyes

In theory...

You could have two NAT destinations (use the Wizard to create the 'NAT' rule, then add the additional destination).

Or possibly...

Mix-and-Match services, HTTP on one interface and everything else on the other? So then if someone just happens to be receiving a 10Meg email, it wont affect browsing the net.

Or maybe...

Mix-and-Match users, You could create two Address Group definitions (each with 50% of the users) and have two seperate NAT rules.

Or even better...

You could make your own computer's IP static and setup a rule - so you can have an entire DSL to yourself! Twisted Evil


Alas I only have one 1Mbps ADSL connection to play with, so I am unsure how KWF would handle the above!



I have also just realised that Windows XP provides the use of Network Bridging (combining two interfaces to create one)... if you are using Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 - bridge the DSL connections and then setup Kerio to access the bridge. Again, I am not sure of the reliability of this!

Problem is not with KWF itself, you can't have multiple gateways that share/add bandwith in Windows. However, you can but reasonably cheap devices that do can bundle several uplinks and present itself to KWF as one gateway...

What you could do with KWF is split different types of traffic to different interfaces. For example HTTP to one and FTP to another.

Search the forum, there are several more recent topics about this.
