One of my clients is running a 1800 router with ios 12.2. The client had dual adsl and wished to use one as the primary and the other as a fallback/reduntant line. is this possible and how would i go about this.

Hello Jeremy,

the routing part is simple

ip route link1

ip route link2 200

this makes link2 a backup in the real command link2 can be or a L3 interface name or the ip address of the next hop.

The NAT part can be more complex if the two links are with different providers but it can be managed using route-maps with NAT

if with a single provider the NAT part is simpler.

if you like you can provide more details to get better help

Hope to help
