Gateway Load Balancing Protocol

I would like to know with configuration example how can i use GLBP to load balace my internet traffic that are connected to two different service providers in two cisco routers.

Thanks in Advance


Re: Gateway Load Balancing Protocol


AFAIK GLBP wont be possible in this kinda scenario coz of the return traffic destined to your network from the outside world will be most probably blackholed.

would suggest to think of setting up EBGP between u and ur SPs so that you achieve what you are trying to do.

Again to go with BGP you need to check out your address space and also the prequistie before doing that like AS numbers etc.,.

care should be taken about the address space if you have your own then it will be easier in announcing them to both the SPs and about AS numbers you need to get in proper agreement with both the SPs to freeze up on the private AS number if you dont have one.

if u havent seen this do find the links about setting up BGP between SP and a customer and also about load sharing.

Re: Gateway Load Balancing Protocol

I am sorry for mistake in typing in my query. I want to achieve Load sharing using GLBP and not load balancing
