I am trying to implement a WAAS infrastructure and I am not sure about how to connect up one part of it. I am using a WAVE 574 with a 4-port inline adapter. I have one branch location that has a dedicated router and is connected using a T1 line. That location is easy. My second branch location is connected via a MPLS connection that also connects us with many other corporate locations that I am not wanting to optimize.
The issue I’m running into is that the MPLS connection is implemented with 2 routers running HSRP so that they appear to only have one IP address. I have attached a drawing that I did in Visio that helps visualize the way I think it should be done, but I am not sure. The switch is a Layer 3 switch and is the router for the VLANs in the Main Office. I think I could put the 2 MPLS routers and the WAN port from the WAVE on an isolated VLAN and that should work to make sure the traffic gets routed through the WAVE before going out the routers.
Does this seem feasible?
