I need some assistance understanding and configuring a failover VPN route from a Branch location to our Corporate office.

Branch location has MPLS connectivity to Corporate office and I am looking for a solution that in the event that MPLS route is down the VPN route will be used.

I will follow up with a Config post for current reference.

Hi Phil:

Usually, the best practice is to set a floating static route to your Internet VPN tunnel interface with a higher administrative distance than the routing protocol you're using for your MPLS VPN. When the routing fails on your MPLS, the static route takes over and allows your VPN to operate until the MPLS route returns.
