Hi

It totally depends on the network complextivity you have out there.

If its a simple backup link for your primary link then you can better go with static floating routes.

Instead you have reachabilities through different links then you can think off using a routing protocols again based on the network size which is directly related to the number of locations and links between the locations...

Re: backup line options

do most people have a backup route using routing protocols ?

Re: backup line options

its totally depends on your design...and complexity...but for simple setup you can use the static routes with different AD...then you can have dialer watch, backup interface ...or you can also have the routing protolos...

Re: backup line options

is the backup interface command not just the same as using static routes with AD, does this command just keep the interface shutdown until needed ?

Re: backup line options

carl yes when you use the bakcup interface then it will put the backup interface in the standby mode and cannot be used as alink to another...till the primary link is working...

please rate this post if it hleps
