DSL Backup for Point-to-Point Link

Has anyone successfully implemented DSL backup for point-to-point link? Routers on both side of the WAN are 2811s.

Any suggesion is greatly appreciated.

Re: DSL Backup for Point-to-Point Link

Is it internet DSL or private DSL? Are you running a routing protocol?

Re: DSL Backup for Point-to-Point Link

Both routers are running EIGRP. I am thinking of using a DSL line as a backup link between the two 2811 routers shdould the primary T1 fails, but I am sure of the difference between internet dsl and private dsl. Please expand on this.

Thanks.

Re: DSL Backup for Point-to-Point Link

One provides internet access and you would have to build an IPSec tunnel between the two routers, the other is just like a leased line, except it's DSL. Which were you thinking of?

Thakns for your clarification, Collin. I am thinking of using the private DSL. I think that I would need 1 DSL netork module in each 2811 router and configure floating static routes. Is this the proper way of doing it?

That's how I would do it!
