I have Small Scenario. You guys can provide your view on this to come to a conclusion.
I have a multi-tier scenario, which has got two routers in the WAN Edge and the customer has got 1 set of public IP segment to host their public servers behind the firewall. The physical layout will look like ;
(public server)Dmz---- Firewall active (ASA)---2950 switch-IGW1-------internet
Firewall standby (ASA)---2950 Switch ___IGW2------internet
Each of the IGW (Internet Gateway) has got two inbuilt giga interfaces; one is connected directly to the internet (MPLS) and another one connected to the switch. No direct connection between the IGW's.
Running OSPF between these ASA's and IGW's (Broadcast Network Type).Injecting default route on IGW's.
My OBJECTIVE here is to achieve high availability and box level redundancy and want to make use my both internet routers and connections.
1. What if I am getting internet connection from same provider? Is it possible to achieve high availability without doing any changes on the MPLS (PE) end? My internet traffic from inside to outside and our external traffic from outside to inside public serversâ¦
2. If my service provider is ready to configure two different gateways to my public IP address on the PE? (One pointing to my IGW1 with Normal AD and Another one pointing to my second IGW2 with more AD).In that case, only one link will be used most of the time..
3. What if my ISP is ready to run any dynamic protocols between PE and CE (IGW's)? Which one is preferred OSPF or BGP?
Is there any other options are recommendation to follow on?
