I want to Access MPLS (intranet) & internt both at same time

March 10, 2016 at 00:40:20
Specs: Windows 7
I have Broadband Internet & MPLS but to access both I have to configure dual gateways in system and add the routes for MPLS but this scenario doesn't work well.

Internet Gateway IP : 192.168.0.1 ( Local Network )
MPLS Gateway IP : 10.175.0.1

Both the links are terminated over local network switch & further connected to desktop/laptops. I want to know the way through which I should be able to access both networks on single Gateway IP without adding any routes. Please suggest me some methods through which I can do this.

Please help.

What exactly are you trying to do this on? A Windows based PC? A UNIX/Linux based PC? A network appliance??

You need to be connecting the two external connections to a dual WAN router of some sort. Preferably one that either does load balancing or else automatic failover depending on your needs.

I should be able to access both networks on single Gateway IP without adding any routes.

A dual WAN router will accomplish this for you as the router itself will handle the two separate networks and their associated gateways. From the LAN side of things, you'll only have to worry about having a single gateway.

I am having Windows 7 & Windows 10 systems. Need to access MPLS (Intranet) & Internet at same time.

Do you have any demo configuration of dual WAN router? So that it will help me to configure the router.

I want to ask you about alternate solutions as below :

1) If I use a firewall then is it possible to bypass the MPLS traffic and allow internet traffic with specific rules. If yes then for bypassing the traffic what should I require to do exactly.

2) If I use a wifi router then is it possible to access multi-wan on same.

Apart from above if you know any other solutions then please let me know.

I think at this point your best bet is to hire a qualified professional to help you setup your system.

There's no way anybody is going to be able to help you via a forum like this. At the risk of sounding rude, and I do not mean to be, your obvious lack of understanding is what makes this impossible and is the reason I state that you should hire someone qualified and pay them to set this up for you.

I am not the expert that Curt is but I can tell you that the same person who can set up the dual WAN router, can reconfigure your existing Wifi router as a wireless access point for your internal network if the dual WAN router does not have the feature built in.
I agree that you should seek professional help to set this up in the most efficient manner. Getting someone in the field will save you a lot of time, save you from wasting money on the wrong products, and more important, save you on lost productivity.

Is the intranet a part of your business or an extension of a corporate network?
You should not connect an open internet access to a corporate LAN/WAN without the use of a proxy server to secure access or in no time your intranet will be hijacked by hackers!

Does the intranet not have a proxy in place already with access to Internet?

Its small setup and that's why proxy is not needed however require the security for open internet and that's why I am asking whether by installing a firewall device if I connect the internet and MPLS connection to firewall then I will bypass the MPLS network as it is already secured and will set the rules for open internet. I do not know how to bypass the MPLS traffic via firewall.
