Forcing OSPF path metrics.

We have the following simplified situation.

A remote site has two PVC's back to two different headquarter routers. The HQ routers then fall into the same LAN segment.

We want to force one of the PVC's to be the primary (it is connected to a more powerful router) link between the HQ and the remote site. Only if this PVC is down (for whatever reason) should the router fail to the other link.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Forcing OSPF path metrics.

you need to make the ospf cost lower on the link you want to favor

in interface conf mode

ip o cost XX

typically the cost on the t1 is 60
