Re: Yet another routing question

Maybe the easiest way to do this is to have two firewalls, one for the

This way you have easy, predictable static routing from everwhere to
everywhere though it requires slightly more complex PF rules. Each
firewall will only need a default route plus a route to each internal
net. Internal and external hosts shouldn't need any routing changes.
That may be more complexity than you want, but it's cheaper than a Cisco
and doesn't require any dynamic routing. Ideal for xDSL and cable.
In addition, should your cable service become unavailable, you could route
the internal clients out through ADSL for the duration of the outage. Of
course, this won't work the same for your servers if the ADSL fails. (At
least, not without three-way dynamic routing between you, your cable and
ADSL providers, which is, at best, most unlikely).
