I am trying to use a VPN tunnel as a back up to my T1 connection. The main site has an ASA5505 and the remote site with the Cisco2811. I am having a problem brining up the VPN tunnel when the T1 goes down. I have been searching for a sample configuration on the web without any success. Is this workable solution or am I missing something? I would appreciate any help. TIA.

Are you using any routing protocols?

You could use floating static routes..

ip route

ip route 200

This sets the route via the VPN ( with a higher AD so it will be used in the event the route to goes down.

Hope this helps.
