    I have a suggestion on fault tolerant firewall using Debian Etch, Squid and Shorewall 4 with Multiple ISP failover capability using heartbeat. Can anyone please write a HOWTO for it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you decribe the setup and its purpose in more detail?

    Hi Falko,

    I'm hoping to build a Debian Etch based Firewall/Gateway having multiple ISP (in my case I have 3 ISPs) with failover capability using heartbeat.

    Here's what I hope to accomplish:

    1. Multiple ISP - In case on ISP would fail, the rest will take over. And my Net servers are running inside a DMZ.

    2. Heartbeat - I'm hoping to build 2 clustered machines for a gateway/firewall (cluster nodes) which will provide fault-tolerance and high availability on the network.

    I'm also hoping that all servers under this network will all be clustered.

    Thank you very much!
