Default Managing multiple connections & Dyndns accounts


I'd like to know your opinion before making wrong or unnecessary installs. I actually have 3 independant internet connections associated with 3 dyndns accounts. There is a great probability that 2 additionnal connections are installed in the coming weeks or months.
I am planning to run 5 virtual machines in a "5 network cards physical machine". This should allow me to :
1. connect to all machines.
2. monitor and manually update dyndns adresses when they are down.
3. use some unused download possibilities

What do you think about my plan? Do I make it complicated as usual ???

Great thanks for your help, comments and suggestions.

I know of a way to make it even more complicated!!

Just use one physical network interface, plug it in a switch (or hub) where the all 3 (or 5) connections are on. If they're al NAT, just make sure they don't overlap on IP-space, or put the gateway's on different IP-addresses.

Also, use just one VM, with the right settings, you could really make it work..


(but basically, it should work. However, regular people would use routers for this.. )

Thanks for your answer.

I didn't know Shorewall and it seems to be what I was looking for ! I'll first try to understand "how and what" before installing.
Better know where I go before I begin. It will take some time as I still belong to the "regular people"

Great thanks again for your answer.
