Use MPLS and Internet connection on your Vigor Router at the same time

Some companies have an MPLS VPN lease line for connecting to the head office, and another line for accessing the Internet also. How can they use the two different connections on a single router? This article describes how to set up a Vigor Router for routing to the private network via WAN1 MPLS VPN and accessing the Internet via WAN2 at the same time.
