Here (Sweden) we have full 100/100mbit to some appartment buildings WITH
fixed IP. But basicly you can only pull/push 1mbit, since there is a
300GB traffic limit imposed. :)
So, I came to an idea that if I use two NICs, one NIC bounded to 100/10
Mbps to serve the pages and one which would be bound with 24/1 Mbps
connection with Fixed-IP to litsen the requests....
my Question is that is it possible and if so, how?
Not possible the easy way: you can't reply to a request from a different
IP than the one the request was sent to due to TCP socket limitations.
The clients expects an answer from IP x on the socket it opened, but
instead receives "unknown" data on a new socket coming from IP Y.
To get this working you would need a third fixed IP/machine somewhere
and do tunneling with two channels combined. That way your inbound
traffic would go via the fixed IP and the outbound via the big pipe.
Giving me an idea right away: if you have any such point available close
by with a fixed IP (some machine somewhere in a rack with good
bandwidth): tunnel it to your home. But if you would have that, you
wouldn't have the webserver at home anyway, would you? :)
