we are planning to add one more link between two location for the backup. right now we have VSAt connection with 256 Kbps. we are already running OSPF between these two location. the problem is that we dont have enough ethernet interface to connect the new backup link at one side. the new link is coming through ethernet. hence we arranged one 2600 series router at one end and terminated the link to that port. we plan to run ospf in that 2600 router. can we still make vsat link as primary as ethernet link cost is 10 ? is the current plan ok or need to change the topology

Please find attached the plan.VSD.

With OSPF, you can manually cost the backup interface (both sides) to look less attractive then the primary path.
