Can RIP Protocol be used for load sharing for two unequal connection?

Dear Cisco Forum Member,

My customer need to use two connections for each remote locations.

For Primary connection, my customer using Frame relay connection.

For Secondary connection, my customer using vsat ip.

Bandwidth for Frame relay is 64 kbps. And for vsat ip is 32 kbps.

My customer doesn't want to use vsat ip connection only for backup connection. It can be used for load sharing with primary connection.

My questions are:

1. Can RIP Protocol be used for load sharing for two unequal connections?

2. What dynamic protocol that can be used for load sharing? IGRP, EIGRP and OSPF?

Thanks

Re: Can RIP Protocol be used for load sharing for two unequal co

RIP, OSPF, or IS-IS could all be used to load share between the two links, as long as they are configured so the two links appear to be equal cost. EIGRP could load share between the two links either as equal cost links (by configuring the metric the same on both links), or by using variance to unequally load share between them.
