Backup setup with 2 routers & BGP

I am looking to setup a solution for backing up a Metro Ethernet connection on a 2951 using an 1841 and 2 T1's in a Multilink. The Metro E will be primary, and if the BGP peer goes down, I want it to switchover to the 1841. Can it be done and is there an example of the BGP setup to work off of?

Hi,

you can simply set a higher weight for the prefixes learnt by backup path.

neigh 1.1.1.1 remote-as x   ---> primary

neigh 2.2.2.2 remote-as xx  ----> backup

neigh .2.2.2  weight 101

Regards.

Alain
