hello guys i am working in a small it company that builds up netwroks for hotels so we are using a netbalancer-failover called zeroshell
we ve got no problem so far but i just wanted to find something that i ve been looking for a long time

 

lets say the client has 2 internet connections 1 adsl and 1 vdsl i want to see which ip comes from which line 

for example lets say that an iphone with an ip of 192.168.0.100 is on the network i want to find out in which ppp is he connected on 
also do i have the power to control that maybe selectively choose which ip will go online

thanks all opinions aprreciated

"i want to find out in which ppp is he connected"

go to ipchicken.com and note what it says is the wan ip address

 

"do i have the power to control that maybe selectively choose which ip will go online"

not for guests at the hotel.  Depending on equipment you can setup a reserved ip list from one interface or another. 

You know how to do ip reservations in dhcp server?

 

I would point out that setting specific lists defeats the purpose of failover/load balancing.

so if i want for example the administrator of the hotel to connect only to the vdsl line instead of randomly connected to the adsl i can achieve that using ip reservation putting his static ip in there?

If you configure the two wan links as independent then yes you can assign which to whom.

But you miss the point.

 

The two wan links should go into a dual wan port router/load balancers.  The hardware decides which wan link is used or if one fails routes all traffic through the one that is up.

 

Otherwise two routers/gateways and split scope dhcp servers with ip reservations would work.  Sure isn't the route I would go.  More work and time to maintain.
