Is this network setup possible?

February 4, 2009 at 15:19:36
Specs: Windows XP, NA

I have 2 adsl lines with 2 routers. I have access to the one router (I'll call this B), but no access to the other (I'll call this A)as it is locked off due it being part of service provided via a 3rd party.

What I want to do is have https traffic go out on A, and all other traffic on network B.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!.

I think you answered your own question when you said that you have no access to the other router. How can you route traffic through it with no access?

Thanks for the reply, I was afraid that may be the case. I was hoping that I may be able to install 'something' behind router A that would redirect all other traffic back through router B.

Sorry, I don't think it will work.

This is a very interesting question.

Https is at port 443. If you blocked that port on router B I wonder if the protocol would try other routes.

One way that would work is to launch a VM on that host machine that only knew about the A router [and nothing else] and you only conducted your https traffic in the vm.

VM=virtural machine like the free MS virtual PC or VMware workstation free version.

Thanks Wanderer, I'll give this a go. I would be interested to find out what happens too. Failing that, I will try wingate and see what help that may offer.

We do have a Netgear GSM 7324, but I have no idea if this would help or what I would need to configure it to work.

Thanks again for the replies.

Wingate? Wasn't that the software that had more holes in it than Swiss Cheese, some years ago?

There was a telnet bounce attack possible, among other things, with that.
