qualify the traffic by port or class of service

We are in a switched network, using Cat 5500 switches. The routing is done via RSM on our 2 back bone switches. We have a default route established that currently points to address. What we would like to do is to route all the HTTP/HTTPS traffic to a different ip address. Is there a way to route a specific traffic to an ip address based on a port or a class of service? - sort of like port 80

Re: qualify the traffic by port or class of service

You need Policy Based Routing

This feature was introduced in 12.1 (I believe) and if the RSM is an IOS "Thingy" will support it.

Refer to:

You need to define a policy like


access-list 111 permit tcp any any 80


route-map web permit 10

match ip address 111

set ip next-hop

and apply it to your routing interfaces. Please not that the packets not matching your route maps will be conventionally routed, therefore ensure you have appropriate routes for non-policy based destinations.

Final consideration is that PBR is in PLUS images.
