Gateway Load Balancing

Unanswered Question
Oct 17th, 2007


Is there any way to make GLBP works like HSRP ???...I mean one of the routers works in active mode and the other one in standby??

on page 15 of the following document

I read ::

If no load balance algorithm is specified, default is round-robin

also on page

I read:::

If no load-balance algorithm is specified then GLBP will operate in an identical fashion to HSRP, the AVG will only respond to Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests with its own Virtual Forwarder (VF) MAC address, and all traffic will be directed to the AVG with no occurrence of load balancing.

This confuse me!!!!

Any I dea???

Thanks for your cooperation

I have this problem too.
