    Hi,

    I am wondering, how the zeroshell-distro is dealing with the multi-wan routing. In the GUI it is called “Net Balancer”. Does this mean, that there was something programmed for that feature or is linux capable of multi-wan out of the box? Or is the net-balancer only a Gui to handle the routing things?

    I am asking this, because I have a pair of (ipsec-based) vpn-gateways running with drbd and heartbeat, so they are set up together as a cluster with two nodes. The openvpn multi-wan feature coming with zeroshell is very fascinating and I wonder, if I can adopt this specific feature for my vpn-cluster.

    With kind regards,

    Volker

    Hi there!
    Netbalancer is just the web-gui to configure the routing preferences when you have multiple wans.
    It uses iptables to match and mark traffic, iproute2 to route and load balance the traffic and some ping scripts to test the availability.
