eigrp routes

Hi all

If I have 2 routers on a lan, and both of them connect to a remote location, both the same speed, I know they will load balance, but is it possible for one of the local lan routers to pick up the remote route from the other local lan router on the same site ?

Could you please post the topology and the configs of the routers.

Re: eigrp routes

Hi there

I know how to configure eigrp

I want to know if it is possible, to say have 2 routers on site A, in the same subnet on the lan side, and they both connect over the wan to the same destination to another subnet, my question is, is it possible for one of the routers on the lan, to pickup a route to the remote network via the other lan router on the same subnet ??

Re: eigrp routes

If you know how to configure EIGRP - surely you know about Offset Routing Metrics or even BW/Delay manipulation on WAN interfaces....

I suggest you Read the URL again, just as a refresher.

Re: eigrp routes

If I understand your question correctly, then NO because both routes will be successor routes which will allow them to load balance traffic.

If you change the metric for one of them then it will become a feasible successor and you wont be load balancing. And in this case since one of the routers will not use its primary link because of the changed metric, then YES it will use the route provided by its adjacent neighbor on the local segment in SiteA.

Same thing will happen when you have a failure of one of these links to the remote location.
