I am trying to setup BGP between our primary isp and the backup isp . We have our own AS number and a netblock that we would like to advertise . I would like to setup BGP in such a way that i will be advertising a /24 bit route to the BGP cloud and the ISP will only advertise a default route to US . Also i would like to setup HSRP between the two ISP CPE routers so that the primary ISP router will have a higher standby priority and the backup isp router has a lower standby priority .I have the following two questions regarding BGP setup in this scenario :
1) Do i need to setup IBGP peeing between the primary ISP CPE and the backup ISP CPE router if i am not planning load balance between the two ISP's?
2) What is the preferred or the best way of configuring HSRP tracking ? As far as I know we could track the physical interface , line protocol , track ip route and ping an ip . I would like to know which is the preffered way of tracking HSRP .
Any help is greatly appreciated . Thank you â¦
