HSRP with a virtual interface ????

Unanswered Question
Oct 31st, 2008

Hello all,


I am working on a new pppoe setup and am hoping to configure HSRP/VRRP or something else to eliminate to possibility of hardware failure. Running on a 7206vxr box with the following (pertinent) configuration:


pdn enable


loopback 41

ip address 192.168.41.1 255.255.255.255


interface virtual-template41

ip mtu 1492

ip unnumbered loopback 41

no ip route-cache cef

no ip route-cache

no logging event link-status

load-interval 30

no peer default ip address

ppp authenication pap


bba-group pppoe global

virtual-template 41

sessions per-mac limit 2


interface g0/2.2

encapsulation dot1q 4

pppoe enable group global


Currently works. But if this interface or router dies, then so do the customers. Is it possible to set up a second 7206 box and run HSRP/VRRP on the virtual interface so if primary box fails, the secondary takes over?


Suggestions....Comments...


Thanks


Todd

Hello Todd,

I don't think you can because this is PPPoE: point-to-point logical link between your broadband NAS and the user.


Here, you should need a virtual multi chassis multilink PPP over ethernet


However the user can use multiple PPPoE clients: one pointing to NAS1 and one pointing to NAS2: the problem then becomes how to forward frames for/from the two NAS: this would require more info about your scenario


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hi There,


HSRP only binds with a physical address.
