Procurve swthich that supports two internet lines?


Hi.

Would you please see attatched bmp file?


============================================================

Step:

1) Someone uses web application at clients (MS explorer..)

2) Procurve switch recognizes port number (80)

3) Procurve switch chooses to use secondary internet line

or

3-1) Procurve switch chooses to use main internet line

============================================================

Required function:

* two or more internet lines connection

* application port number recognition

* traffic dispersion



I have two 2848 switches(j4904a) and wonder if 2848 switch can function as stated above.

If not please recommend other Procurve switch.


Thank you for your assistance.

Hi

You can connect many WAN links to any ProCurve switch, thats not really matter here.

What matters is that, you need to separate the traffic based on Port number, or Source IP, and this functionality is not yet supported on ProCurve switches (Policy Based Routing).

I suggest that you connect the Internet lines to another Router or Firewall that can do that.

Good Luck !!!

Hi !

1. You can use vlans and extended acl to do the job.
Any Intelligent Edge Procurve switch can do that (53xx, 34xx, 54xx, 35xx etc.).

2. You can use port mirroring.

Good luck,
