Re: Redundant internet

Hi Mahmood,

Most of our customers (i work for a service provider) use this solution and they face no problems, try pointing the static routes to both the outgoing interface and the next-hop simultaneously (to make sure that the primary route is removed from the routing table just when the primary interface fails):

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 serial0/0.1 x.x.x.x

Re: Redundant internet

Hi Mahmood,

What is the routing protocol you are using ?

If static/default you can just use floating static routes (for the upload 2 default routes with higher AD for the backup route on your side, and for the download 2 static routes for your LAN on the SP side with the backup route with higher AD).

Re: Redundant internet

HI Mahmood,

This is not as simple as just putting the static route to both the outgoing interface, it will work only when you have both the connection from same ISP, normally nobody takes connection from same ISP.

If you have connection frm two different ISPs your browsing from LAN will work with above solution, when any of ISP is down . But none of your internal servers will be reachable if public IPs are of those ISP of which link is down.Because normally ISPs dont route for each others Public IP.

If you want both ISP should route for your public IP block then you should use BGP.

Regards.
