failover with HSRP and BGP or any other routing protocol ?

hi,

we have a site with to connections in with 2 router for failover. We would like to do a more automatic failover when one of the routers fails.

This is what I have come up with so far...

http://home.netpower.no/paal/hsrp/hsrp-bgp.jpg

HSRP on the LAN, but I'm not sure if BGP is the right thing to use on the WAN(ATM) to our HQ Main Router.

I find BGP a bit complex to configure, but it's doable.

OSPF is easy to set up in VRF's, but how is BGP to configure in VRFs ?

any suggestions or tips ?

Hello Paal,

>> OSPF is easy to set up in VRF's, but how is BGP to configure in VRFs ?

It's even easier:

just create the address-family ipv4 vrf VRF_NOC

router bgp xxx

adress-family ipv4 vrf VRF_NOC

neigh y.y.y.y remote-as YYY

neigh y.y.y.y activate

red con

red static

no sync

no auto-sum

Hope to help

Giuseppe
