I'm about to purchase an 1841 ISR with a HWIC-4ESW (4port switch). On each of the two built in F/E ports i'm going to put a DSL link with static IPs from different ISPs. Can I set up F/E 1 to perform backup/load balancing for F/E 0? Will basic EIGPR routing work in this senario?
HWIC-4ESW acts as normal switch ports which is available in the switches.
you wont be able to assign ips to the F/E ports instead you can create SVIs and have them assigned with the ips.
Also when it comes to loadbalancing you can have 2 equal cost routes which takes care of that but if you want to have redundancy then better consider to make use of tracking feature since the F/E port will remain up though you have some probs with the line.
In this case with 2 equal cost routes the traffic thru the faulty link will be blackholed(dropped).
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
