it is possible.

1> Inter Vlan routing is happening through ur L3 switch.

2> In L3 switch give one default route towards PIX as the next hop.

3> In Pix configure 2 static route for the LAN segments towards the L3 switch and one default route towards ur outside interface ie. router.

4> In the router you can configure 2 default routes towards the service provider, if u want load balancing.

5> Otherwise configure PBR for one link to be primary and another one for backup.

6> Give 2 static routes in Router towards PIX for return traffic of LAN segment.

7> For Lan traffic to go to internet u can permit the segments in PIX nat0 and do the PATTING in Router or

Hope this will solve ur purpose.

Pls rate.

Hi Lalit ,

Could you pls let me know is there any specific protocol you are running on the router . if its static then there is not no issues . Point a static route on the router as :

ip route < Pri_ WAN _ Link >

ip route < Pri_ WAN _ Link >

For backup

ip route < Sec_ WAN _ Link > 240

ip route < Sec_ WAN _ Link > 240 .

Above config onlt applies only for static , if you r running any protocol like BGP then you can use prepending or BGP attribute .

let me know if it works
