hi,


we have a site with to connections in with 2 router for failover. We would like to do a more automatic failover when one of the routers fails.


This is what I have come up with so far...

HSRP on the LAN, but I'm not sure if BGP is the right thing to use on the WAN(ATM) to our HQ Main Router.

I find BGP a bit complex to configure, but it's doable.


OSPF is easy to set up in VRF's, but how is BGP to configure in VRFs ?


any suggestions or tips ?

Hello Paal,


>> OSPF is easy to set up in VRF's, but how is BGP to configure in VRFs ?


It's even easier:

just create the address-family ipv4 vrf VRF_NOC


router bgp xxx

adress-family ipv4 vrf VRF_NOC

neigh y.y.y.y remote-as YYY

neigh y.y.y.y activate

red con

red static

no sync

no auto-sum


Hope to help

Giuseppe
