ip policy route-map 1721 Problem.


I have a router 1721 with three interfaces.

- FastEthernet0 is LAN.

- Ethernet0 is WAN and is connected to provider1.

- Ethernet1 is WAN and is connected to provider2.

The two providers are up and they are routing traffic without problems.

I have too the following "ip policy route-map" for SMTP since 4th of January:

access-list 160 permit tcp any any eq smtp

route-map correo permit 10

match ip address 160

set interface Ethernet0 Ethernet1


route-map correo permit 20


interface FastEthernet0

ip address

ip policy route-map correo


Everything was working ok for SMTP untill this afternoon. The ip policy started to not to route and I couldn't route SMTP.

I had to remove the config "ip policy route-map correo" from FasEthernet0 and then SMTP started to be routed ok again.

After this I tried to shutdown Provider1 and then Provider2 (to see if someone was filtering) but everything was ok.

This is the router:

Is there any bug that can do the ip policy not to work suddenly when it was working ok untill today?

Thanks for your help.


Re: ip policy route-map 1721 Problem.

The most common reason for this problem is a misconfigured or missing Access Control List (ACL).For each combination of match and set commands in a route map statement, all sequential match clauses must be met simultaneously by the packet for the set clauses to be applied. There may be multiple sets of combinations of match and set commands in a full route map statement. For more information on configuring match and set clauses, refer to
