Re: Multipath Routing
James Stevenson a écrit :
I seem to have some problems with this. I am not sure if it would fall under
firewall but since netfilter is involed I will try anyway.
The current problem I am having is there are 2 internet connections. Either
1 or the other internet connection will work fine.
However I am trying to use both at the same time. I was doing it in the
Conn1: is normally on ppp0
"Normally" ? :-D
Conn2: is on eth1
Local: is on eth0
Both ppp0 and eth1 are connected using different isp's
And I was hoping todo a load balance with them as well as have some
However NAT is performed on both of this interfaces because eth0 is build of
private addresses. I can get the multipath route's to work and NAT does
occur but then packets with the wrong source address go out the wrong
interface. Eg Packets with source address of ppp0 goes out eth1 etc..
What is your exact NAT and routing setup ?
Currently I am separating this using a command like
ip rule add from <ppp0 ip address> lookup Conn1
ip rule add from <eth1 ip address> lookup Conn2
But this doesn't seem to make any difference to the packets after NAT is
performed on them.
You must be aware that source NAT (SNAT) or masquerading (MASQUERADE)
are performed by iptables in the POSTROUTING chain, that is *after* the
routing phase. So it does not influence routing which sees only original
source addresses. You can have an quick overview of an IP packet path
through Netfilter and IP routing in Linux 2.4 on this page :
By the way, did you check that reverse path filtering is disabled in the
kernel settings for both external interfaces, since it is incompatible
with multihoming ?
