1811 Site to Site with VPN Failover?

Unanswered Question

I have 2 sites connected via P2P T1's. The only traffic that travels across the T1's is internal network traffic. Both Sites use DSL for internet access. I would like to configure a VPN tunnel between the 2 sites to use in case the T1 fails. I'm trying to find the best way to implement this. Should I look at OSPF or floating static routes? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Do you mean if the T1 fail, there is a VPN via Internet between two sites ?

If yes, you can enable the VPN via Internet then use floating static to backup the T1 link. It is only one VPN that there is no need to enable OSPF in the VPN. And be ensure to include the correct traffic in the VPN tunnel.

Hope this helps.
