Hi, I still haven't succeeded in routing my local and international
accounts but Route Sentry apparently performs just that.
Unfortunately it's only available for windows. Does somebody know of
an open source linux equivalent?

Hi Dave,

it looks like "Route Sentry" is a sort of traffic director? What is
it you expect it to do for you? Using two ADSL links is no problem
under Linux.


I've set up two pppoe dsl devices, one for local internet traffic - to and (not quite sure how to specify
the 41 route)

So all traffic to those addresses should go via dsl0 ? I think the 41
routes would be: ( - ( - ( - ( -

It's a rough guess, I'm no expert at subnet masks.

and either eth0 or dsl1 for all other internet traffic.
I've played around with /etc/sysconfig/network/routes but I can't get
it right. Thanks

Assuming your DSL links are up all the time, you could just make them
static routes. If not, I think you need something
like /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-dslX.route, which will establish the
routes when the interface is available.


I didn't know of ifcfg-dsl0.route, I tried ifroute-dsl0 but didn't have
any success. I am assuming that I need to only have the default route in
routes and the specific dsl0 routes in ifcfg-dsl0.route.
