Greeting


I have only one default route 0.0.0.0 which configured as static route. I am currently trying to configure multi-homing.


Could I get advice, if I can configure second edge router using static route also, and this router can share the load with current one? I mean without BGP/EIGRP?


Any comments will be apprecated


Thanks in advance

Yes you can


if you've two static default routes the router will do loadbalancing by default will be per session loadbalancing

which means session to ip x.x.x.x will use next hop 1

session to ip y.y.y.y will use next hop 2 and so on


if this is Internet links you may need to consider nating configurations

also you if you want to look for advanced ios features you may use pfr for loadbalancing with static routes


see the bellow document which wil help you to under stand some features that may apply to your case
