I've set them up using in the same fashion as I did my first set of IP's. However I can't access them externally.
I can ping them from the machine itself. I can also ping them from another machine on the same network as the first port (the one going through the firewall). I can't however ping them externally.
That to me says my ISP has something misconfigured since I can only get at the IP's within his network. He's claiming that I've got a misconfiguration with my default gateway (he was vague, I think he's saying traffic on the second port isn't coming and going in the right fashion).
Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong? Is there a trick to this if there are different default gateways for different IP's on different ports?
The key is the routing table, but you first need to decide exactly which IP's/subnets the second interface will communicate with.
The problem is going to be that a stateful firewall on the "wrong" interface will see the packet coming back, but didn't see the first packet going in, so it's going to block the response packet as not being in it's connection table.
The basic problem is that the response packets are leaving from the wrong interface. Without more details about at least what operating system you are running (uname -a would be helpful), and preferably what services you plan to run on the new IPs (http via apache?), we aren't going to be able to offer specific advice about the best way fix the issue.
And unfortunately I can't get all the IP's outside the firewall or inside. I've got to take the half and half.
# table 1 has rules for X.Y.151.5 (eth0)
ip route add X.Y.151.0/24 dev eth0 src X.Y.151.5 table 1
ip route add default via X.Y.151.254 table 1
ip route add 127.0.0.0/8 dev lo table 1
ip rule add from X.Y.151.5 table 1
# table 2 has rules for X.Y.131.5 (eth1)
ip route add X.Y.131.0/24 dev eth1 src X.Y.131.5 table 2
ip route add default via X.Y.131.254 table 2
ip route add 127.0.0.0/8 dev lo table 2
ip rule add from X.Y.131.5 table 2
And for default routes - where the connection is initiated from my server - I do load balancing across the two interfaces.
# for default routes, do load balancing
ip route replace default scope global nexthop via X.Y.151.254 dev eth0 weight 1 nexthop via X.Y.131.254 dev eth1 weight 1
