Failover Connectivity in RIP v2

Hi,

Maymar Branch has dual connectivity(DXX & Radio). we want the Radio Link as a primary and DXX Link as a secondory & when the primary goes down the secondary takeover but the traffic goes through the DXX link because of less no. of hop counts and Radio Link treated as a secondary link, all the router & switches are running on rip version 2 protocol.

Hi Salman

use offset lists to modify RIP hop counts.

this will allow you to increase number hops seen from DXX.

Re: Failover Connectivity in RIP v2

Hi Sam,

Thanks for your helpful response this will work on only one condition when i shutdown the DXX interface on Maymmar branch did this work only on failover condition .

I need to know one more query from you i.e

1) If i run RIP v2 on Maymmar how would i be make radio link as primary and DXX Link as secondary link.

Is there any command in RIP v2 to make primary route and secondary route. I also attached Maymmar router configs.

Re: Failover Connectivity in RIP v2

Hi Salman

Under routing process add

router rip

offset-list 10 out 5 s0/2/0

offset-list 10 in 5 s0/2/0

!

access-list 10 permit x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

the above will add a metric of 5 when sending via ur backup link and 5 when receiving via backup link.

x.x.x.x is the Prefix u wish to apply this offset to.

do sh ip route before and after this to validate the changes.

Re: Failover Connectivity in RIP v2

Hi Sam,

After your recomendation this was the result i found

Trace from Branch Switch to Maymmar server

BranchSwitch#traceroute 10.0.14.0

Type escape sequence to abort.

Tracing the route to 10.0.14.0

1 10.254.1.2 80 msec 80 msec 48 msec

2 10.0.2.2 60 msec 56 msec 64 msec

3 10.254.1.105 92 msec * 76 msec

Trace from Maymmar to Branch Switch server

Maymar#traceroute 10.20.0.1

Type escape sequence to abort.

Tracing the route to 10.20.0.1

1 10.254.1.89 60 msec 48 msec 32 msec

2 10.20.3.1 88 msec * 92 msec

I want Maymmar traffic goes from radio link not secondary link.

Re: Failover Connectivity in RIP v2

where did u make the changes I suggested ?

Please paste ur rip config and sh ip route for Branch switch and maymar server.
