Using the SMC with the 2x DLink 300T's. The SMC load balances my traffic so that when the guys are gaming and some one is using Face Book then my pings doesn't spike. I use 2x adsl lines because of the amount of pc's I have in my shop. I have been using it like this for the past 2 years and it has work 100%.
What I would like to do is use Route Sentry with a Proxy so that I can save on my bandwidth costs as I am currently using about 60Gb's of traffic a month, of which most of it is local traffic.
I need Route Sentry to be able to handle multiple lines, the proxy to handle the connections for the pc's on the network and to act as a gateway. I then also need to be able to do the load balancing so that I dont have the ping spike problem with users using Face Book. The other problem that I have is that I need gateway/Route Sentry/Proxy to be able to send the right data back to the correct pc on the same adsl line, otherwise secure sites don't work like, online banking. any ideas?
There is no reason why the Linksys scripts can't run on any linux box. It just needs to be adapted so that it points to the correct application paths, and to have installed any packages that the script requires, ie rp-pppoe. There is also an ipcop thread similar to Linksys thread, which aims to arrive at the same solution.
Is it possible to port this code to a desktop Linux distro like SUSE? I use OpenSUSE as a server machine and router. It would be great if I could have the script route my traffic in the same way RouteSentry does on Windows.
