In our network we have two gateways to the Internet.
Should we 1:
Create a new Linux box and configure it as a router between both
gateways and let it decide the best path to take to the Internet (i.e:
if one gateway is down, load, shortest path). After the router is up
change the servers to point this router as their gateway.
Or should we 2:
Take every server on the network and configure it to be a router. So
it would decide which gateway to utilize. This one doesn't make sense
to me because the host would then be a router. Should the decision on
which path to take not be done by a "Router" and not a host configured
as a router.
Thanks in advance,
