1400/700 Multiples ISPs

Jump to solution

Hello community I wanted to ask you if you have configured a SMB device with three Internet connections

The Internet Wizard let me create new Internet configurations, but I wonder if I can use the LAN interfaces for this new connection.

Also if this configurations works like PBR to have differents routes per source and destination for each ISP.

Hi Pablo,

Gaia embedded devices supports up to 32 Internet connections according to Check Point 600 Appliance Known Limitations (This is the last document where this information is mentioned for the OS).

To use more than two internet connections on 700/1400 you have to set your DMZ or WAN interfaces as Trunk, by checking the option "Use connection as VLAN" when you add a new internet connection. You will have to add a Switch in front of the interface on your topology for this.

Here is an example of 730 device configured with 3 internet connections:

Also PBR will work as expected with multiple routes through different ISP's. You can verify their mechanism here How to configure alternative IPv4 static routes on SMB appliances after an Internet-connection probi... 

Regards.

I really was not aware of this, thanks!

This will be really possible with R77.20.81 upon release - that firmware for 700/910/1400 will have Flexiport that allows any LAN port to be assigned as a WAN port and supports more than 4 Internet connections in High Availalbility or Load Sharing mode, all only for locally managed and SMP.
