Redundant connection between Microwave System and VSAT via Router

Unanswered Question

dear all,

I have a router cisco 2600 series connect to microwave system and VSAT.

I need to make a redundant connection between link microwave system and VSAT.

For your information link microwave system is main connection and VSAT it's for backup system connection if microwave system down.

Hi Nurul,

what routing protocol are you using? if you use static routes, you can use normal static route for the primary link and floating static for the secondary.


ip route (for primary link)

ip route (for secondary link)

Note: the Administrative Distance you specify for the secondary link should be greater than 1 as the primary link has the AD of 1 by default.

if you use dynamic routing protocol, you have to consider the metric of that protocol.

HTH, Please rate if it does
