Re: how can I config load balancing on the router?

hi laden

all these are going to a single location or what?.

if it is to a single destination you can go for multilink configuration, with EIGRP.

or you can go for static route, with per-packet load balancing.at first pls provide some more details regarding the scenario.

hello Binoy

these lines use for one factory in one location & I want to use these lines on one router .all the users in this office want to connect to internet but according to traffic ,they can swith between lines.

Hi Ladan,

If you want to load balance according to type of traffic the best will be to configure Policy Base Routing (PBR).

In PBR you can define access list which can classify the traffic on base of source and destination ip and also on port numbers i.e type of traffic and you can specify the exit interface as per different access list in that policy.

Apply that service policy on in lan intercace from where user will be hitting the router.

Hi

First of all, it very depends on network topology, so i assume that all 3 line is connect to single router and single domain.

Second, every routing protocol provide load balancing up to 4 lines by default, but the way of implimentation is different.

For example.

for OSPF, using ip ospf cost on the each interfaces with same cost, can deploy load sharing.

for EIGRP, using variance 4 under router eigrp xx command, you can acheive this load sharing.

If those line is connecte to different domain. then could you post more detail topology and BGP configuration?

thanks
