New setup: SSG-320M

New setup: SSG-320M

Hi all,

I'm a complete newbie to Juniper kit, so please bare with me!!

We have a Cisco 2600 router with a 2Mbps leased line plumbed into the back, and have ISDN backup on that router should the leased line fail.

However I am now in the process of replacing our ancient firewall with a new one, and I am looking at the SSG-320M 1Gb model.

Somewhere along the lines, I want to replace the backup ISDN with a decent ADSL circuit, and then shove all outbound web traffic over that. This then keeps our leased line free for remote access, our online webstore and email. (e.g. critical stuff)

My question is, with the SSG-320M, is there an ADSL modem PIM? And if so, is it possible to tell the Juniper to shove all port 80 traffic to that interface whilst all SMTP goes out over to the Cisco and then to the leased line?
Finally, if I can do all that, could I get the 320M to fallover to shoving all traffic to a single interface automatically should one of the two infaces fails? (presumably using metrics or is there something more intelligent?)

Yes, there is an ADSL modem PIM:  http://www.juniper.net/products/jseries/dsheet/100133.pdf

Yes, you can route traffic based on port.  You can use Policy based routing to accomplish this.

Yes, you can have failover routes using metrics.

So, basically yep on everything you asked.
