Greetings to everyone.

Does anyone know any good program that can work with Winroute that allows 2 separate DSL connections to be used at the same time?

Will Winroute have this type of function too? right now, it only has connection failover, but not the function to combine 2 DSL connections into 1 big connection pipe.

I was about to recommend Winroute for our corporate firewall but held off since my company wants to have 2 DSL connections (1 for actual use and 1 for backup) to be used at the same time, kinda like what hardware DUAL-WAN routers do.

I have used 2 DSL but with a Multi-wan Router before Winroute. So to winroute it is 1 DSL. I left the router with all ports open and Winroute takes care of security/web filtering, etc.
That works !!

I think that the only-one gateway is a restriction of Windows.

Used a Micronet SP890 in this case.

Hi.

But with a multi-wan router plus a winroute firewall pc, wouldn't that slow the internet connection down since they are many "stop overs" for the incoming and outgoing connections?

Thanks,

JG

I dind´t notice any slowdowns at least with my bandwith (512 k + 512 k ). Of course there is a Double NAT, but everything worked fine. In the same box I had installed KMS + KWF with ISS web filter.
On the router I left open all ports for incoming + outgoing connections, so it only works for the load balancing of the DSL.
Regards.

'Stop-overs' aren't the biggest contributor to latency (at most a few ms). Distance (like crossing a continent) is by far the largest cause for latency (and can't be helped Wink so I would not worry.

Of course, all provided you have decent equipment.
