Dual ISP - Set backup route using PPPOE

Unanswered Question
Jun 24th, 2010


I have 2 ISP links. The main one is configured and I am now configuring out backup link on the ASA.

I am following Document 70559 Redundant or Backup ISP links and am at the stage where I set my second stack route have an admin distance greater than the orginal route that the primary link uses.

This second link uses PPPOE and I'm not quite sure what I fill in for the route here.

The main example has

route backup (backup route) 254

I'm not sure what I use in place of the as I am using PPPOE.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a mil

I have this problem too.

You would use your provider's gateway that they provided you. Have you configured the pppoe connection yet? Does it have a link?

Let's say that the provider assigned you 2 addresses ( and is your default gateway on their end. Then you'd put in

ip route 254

The main 0 0 route is always used unless it's down (because a static route has a default AD of 1).
