Hi All - can I just confirm with those in the know that on the NG100 I can have multiple gateways (via a switch) on the same subnet on the WAN/Internet Port that I can use for load balancing or for manually assigning to a designated VLAN ID ?

I have a client who due to location is wanting/needing to use 4 x 4G routers...

Many thanks for any insights...

That in fact is only possible possible by using VLANs between the Internet/WAN port in Kerio Control and the switch you mentioned in your post. Each VLAN can then have a unique gateway IP address assigned. The switch then mist route traffic in each VLAN to the correct 4G router.

Thanks - so just to clarify - This would work for load balancing not just for VLAN distribution? In my head, I only needed a VLAN switch on one of the LAN side ports - but I will need another VLAN switch on the WAN port too?

Thank you.

It is possible if you use a switch with VLAN option.
Create VLAN trunk to Control. example vlan 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004
Make this also on the WAN port interface of the Control NG100.
On the switch you make four dedicated VLAN ports. One on VLAN 1001, one VLAN1002, etc
On those ports you connect the four 4G ROUTERS.

Yes, configuring VLANs on the Internet/unprotected interfaces in Kerio Control will allow you to use the load balancing feature.

You don't necessarily need two separate network switches. One switch can suffice for both VLAN groups: internal and external. A managed switch will allow you to do this.

However, in order to ensure a physical separation, not just logical, you can use two switches: one for the LAN and one for the WAN side.
