Hi !

Anyone knows proven solution - IPTables/Firewall with automatic net link
checking, failover and optionally load balancing, for 2 net connections with
2 ISPs?

One of the issues we had with previous IP tables/shell script is to
correctly switch default gateway when main link was down.

Our server runs OpenSUSE with ISPConfig and IP telephony, so correct work of
such solution is essential.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if multipathing TCP is usable in opensuse, but you may have
a look at it. Explained here:

Config example here:

SuSE uses the same kernel as everyone else so why wouldn't it be usable?
