Primary and Secondary tunnels

I am currently working with a remote office tunnel setup and I have a question about setting up primary and secondary tunnels. I have two seperate internet connects to the main office that each have a tunnels pointing back to the remote office. How do I configure the tunnels so that my primary tunnel will always be used unless it is down?

Re: Primary and Secondary tunnels

You can do it a couple of different ways, using 'backup int' command or using a floatic stating route with a higher admin distance via the backup tunnel.

int t1

ip add 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.252

backup interface tunnel2

int t2

ip add 10.2.2.1 255.255.255.252

(or)

ip route 'remote NET' 10.1.1.2

ip route 'remote NET' 10.2.2.2 250

Pls. rate all helpful posts.
