Loadsharing on different interfaces

Hi

I've got 2x2Mb leased lines terminated on different interfaces, one on G.703, the other on V.35, at the ISPs side. Is there any problems with loadsharing here, or does the bandwidth statement solve the problem if any. Thanks

Re: Loadsharing on different interfaces

What routing protocol are you using?

EIGRP uses 'delay' as one of his metrics for calculating cost, so in this case you would need to assign either a cost or variance to do loadbalancing.

OSPF just uses the bandwidth statement so here you are OK.

BGP by default doesn't load share, you will need to use an IGP process to accomplish load balance.

Remember, you are only load balancing your outbound traffic, its up to your carrier to setup load balancing for your inbound traffic.
