Re: Load Balance

Hi friend,

You can also consider Multilink for load balancing

eg.

interface Multilink1

ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

ppp multilink

ppp multilink group 1

interface Serial0/2/0

no ip address

encapsulation ppp

ppp multilink

ppp multilink group 1

interface Serial0/1/0

no ip address

encapsulation ppp

ppp multilink

ppp multilink group 1

ip route

HTH, rate if it does

Re: Load Balance

I have two different ISP connections with two different Public ip address, is there any way to configure load balancing in my router. i need to enable NAT in my router.

Re: Load Balance

Hi,

You can also consider the CEF load-balancing to achieve the load-balancing per destination or per-packet.

Here is a link which can tell you about the diffrent load-balancing mechanism:

HTH, Please rate if it does.

Re: Load Balance

If there is two ISP's with two different public IP's, how can i assign my two public IP's in multilink.

can i configure multilink at my side without worrying about two iSP'S configuration (ofcourse PPP at my end). and where i give nat outside command ? is it in both the serial interfaces.

Plz kindly help me.

Re: Load Balance

You can't bundle 2 different ISPs into a multilink. The configuration must be identical at both ends (encapsulation ppp and ip address subnet must correspond).

Re: Load Balance

Hi All

Can this config also be applied to

Interface Gigabyte0/1

Thanks

Re: Load Balance

No, with Gigabit interfaces, you need to implement etherchanneling.

Re: Load Balance

If you are talking about using multilink on inetrface gigabyte 0/1, then no it cannot be used on this interface. It is only used on the interfaces which uses PPP as the encapsulation like serial interfaces. Ethernet interfaces uses a different encapsulation.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
