load balance with multi exits on static route?

Answered Question
Jan 3rd, 2010

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

I have this problem too.

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
