View Full Version : [ubuntu] Balance Internet access with multilpe ethernet cards

August 10th, 2009, 08:27 PM
Ok, we have this issue at work..

I'm not an expert on Linux, nor Ubuntu, but the guy who managed this no longer works here and the other guy is extremely busy, so I have been summoned to the rescue.

Either way, the server has three network cards.. two ethernet cards, each which receives Internet access from separate routers, and an optical card that connects to our network via the swich.

We have Internet access right now, but it is to my understanding that only one of the ethernet cards is being use.

What we need to do is to get both of them to provide Internet access, and that the access is balanced...

All I have is SSH access to the server which is running Ubuntu.

I don't know what else you guys might need to give me a hand with this.. But please let me know your suggestions.
