 Subject:  Two gateways?
 Date:  Wed, 31 Aug 2005 22:25:46 -0400
I have an expensive 512 kb fixed bandwidth leased line that is stable 
but not very wide. It suffices for our servers and voip traffic with 
traffic shaping. However, we have  a webcam that supplies live video of 
the beach and tends to overload the gateway on it's own, so I have 
turned it off for now.
We have an addiitonal feed form Cable TV, it's not as reliable but it's 
pretty fast and bandwidth is cheap. I'd like to use that for the 
non-essential traffic such as the webcam and remote extension voip 
traffic. Should I use another M0n0wall box with the internal IP set to a 
static IP on the same C class and set the webcam to use it as the 
gateway, or shoud I run another C class altogether?
What's the  pros and cons of each?
