I too am looking assistance in a similar situation.

VPN via DSL in the event of MPLS failure.

Re: Failover from HQ to Branch

Hi,

we setup a VPN tunnel that is now a "backup" to the main MPLS link. MPLS routes are advertised using OSPF and we simply use a floating static route to send traffic to the VPN tunnel when the MPLS fails. In our case the VPN tunnel terminates on a separate firewall from the device terminating the MPLS connection.

I would like to see how you tagged the interesting traffic within your config and route map. Could you provide me with an example please?

Re: Failover from HQ to Branch

I do not see a router in your design, mine looks similar but instead of the Switches I have 2811 routers with security set.

I was looking at the new command used by the Enzo wireless card "Backup interface" and thought that might be way to do failover but not sure. Mine needs to switch to vpn backup upon Layer3 failure not just sync.

Re: Failover from HQ to Branch

the easy way based on your requirment is using HSRP

make the lease line router the active router nthe HSRP group and the VPN router the standby

users will use the virtuall IP addrees of that HSRP

regarding whihc router of cisco to use

hte answer depend on the size of the network and required functionalities
