I have a slight problem that i know i can sort out using Policy based routing. I just want to do something very simple.
If a packet comes from a specific subnet to destination A, then FORWARD it out a specific interface.
please note that i want to do this to bypass one route to destination A which is already configured on the and instead of routing it through one interface, to force it out another interface which is connected to another router which in turns takes care of routing to that destination A
Please explain when i use the following commands, having in mind the followin scenario:
1. The routing to destination A is STATIC ROUTE
2. The route to A is learned through OSPF
having in mind 1 and 2 what would the command MATCH ROUTE TYPE (internal, external, local) be...should i use it at all ???
Also in know i can use SET NEXT HOP, SET INTERFACE , SET DEFAULT INTERFACE and SET DEFAULT NEXT HOP !!!! What should i use , taking in consideration the 1 and 2 !!!
This is simple yest frustrating cause i have no access to the router itself and i talk over the phoen to someone else doing it, and then checnking on the phoen again with users with Tracert to see whether it worked or not !!!
So far we managed to make sure that the acess-list used to match the packets fomr the source is indeed working (has hits) but still the router forwards the packets out of the interface for which the routing table already exists and not the interface stated in the route map !!!
