I am looking for advice at how best to configure my ZeroShell install in the following scenario:
I have 2 x ISP, 1 x Smoothwall Firewall/filtering.
I have installed ZS3 with 3 nics, eth00 (LAN), eth01 (ISP1), eth02 (ISP2).
I hope to have things setup as follows:
Everything on my LAN goes through the Smoothwall firewall. Everthing coming in/out of the smoothwall goes to the Zeroshell. Zeroshell then load balances to the two ISP’s.
Ascii Art diagram:
(DHCP) Static IP
dynamically allocated 10.168.169.168
| ZeroShell3 loadbalance |
| Smoothwall filter |
DHCP serving LAN clients
[Apologies – preview suggests my diagram will not make much sense]
So my question is: is this possible?
If so – any advice on IP setup?
I want to keep my smoothwall as I have filtering policies already setup.

Further to my first ever post above – did I word it correctly?
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might start?
I notice more than 40 views to this thread but no contributions!
Thanks in advance,

it seem to be correct.
I do all the work only with ZS, I also have 2 ISP both dinamic and I use the Loadbalance and seem to works OK the only thing that I also do is the firewall and DHCP all inside ZS.
I tested also a configuration like you suggesting ( having the DHCP and Firewall on another hardware after the ZS HW ) but it add some latency to the traffic so I dismiss the second firewall and setup all in ZS.

That’s my config as well, except that ISP assigns static IPs to my 2x dry DSL loops.
I have DHCP and handful of FW rules on ZS, but we must keep in mind that L7 filter is not working!
