Hey, hope someone can help me with this problem. We currently have a 2821 ISR with a T1 from our ISP. We are out of bandwidth so we are upgrading to a Metro Ethernet connection, which has been installed and tested. The problem/question:
I want to have both connections active with the faster connection servicing internal outbound internet traffic and both connections servicing inbound VPN connections until the migration is complete. I added the VPN map to the second interface and can successfully connect and authenticate and connect the VPN through the new connection. However, I cannot pass traffic to the internal network. When I do the following:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 g0/1
I can sometimes pass traffic over the VPN, and sometimes not. Is it a situation where the router is load balancing VPN traffic between the two connections?
I guess what I am asking is it possible to do what I am attempting? Two external connections to a single box, with both able to terminate VPN connections? If not, I will have to do a single ungraceful dump to the new connection which will be a major pain.
Please raise your hand if you are totally confused.
Thanks in advance for your help.
