I would like to setup 2 sites with the same subnet and AS number.
I'm wondering if this will not cause a problem when we send a connection attempt to our vendor, meaning we would initiate the connection from one site, and the vendor replying to the other site.
Here is our current setup:
Site A (AS555 - IP:22.214.171.124)<--Vendor
Here is the proposed setup:
Site A (AS555 - IP:126.96.36.199)<--Vendor-->Site B (AS555 - IP:188.8.131.52)
Let's say site A initiates a connection attempt to the vendor, they will receive, process and reply. Since Site A initiated the connection, will the reply always return to Site A or possibly go to Site B??
Note: i want to keep the BGP advertisements with the same weight so that customers connect to the closest site.
Thanks for any help.
