I have two sites connected via a Point to Point T1 link. In each side of the point to point link I have two different subnets (i.e. 192.168.2.0 and 192.168.3.0). I have a a full copy of each other on each side of the link (just in case it goes down). At both ends of the PTP link I have a cisco router. I understand that If I have both the serial and the ethernet interfaces plugged in at the same time, the router will always use the Ethernet interface, because it is a directly connected network. Can I still set it up with two paths to the same place (ethernet and serial) and leave the ethernet connection disconnected until it needs to be up? In other words, my serial link goes down, so I plug in my ethernet interface to the standby network and bring it up.
OK. So you can manipulate the router and tell it that the serial link has a lower metric (even-though it is not directly connected like the ethernet interface) than the ethernet interface? If so, what method would you use? Any specific routing protocol that would be better or can it be done using static routes?
