Arup,

As per the link and failover mechanism provided in the link you are going to proceed with your setup then i belive your setup is somewhat same as discussed in those previous thread.

It will be better if you can share your complete setup diagram because in your previous thread a genral query reagarding dual link failover that whay i refer the previous discussion.

Hope to help

Re: How configure Dual ISP failover

Arup,

If you cannot use bgp then you can achive by static routing with IP SLA configuration in router to achive the same,check out the below sample configuration hope that helps.

Configure two default routes in router towards both the isp's.

Configure IP SLA track in router.Check out the below sample config for IP SLA which will help out to track the link status and when ever there is link problem as per the track configuration the default route will removed from cisco router routing table and the traffic will moving to next available ISP.

Check out the below sample config on IP SLA with some explanation:-

ip sla 1
icmp-echo 192.168.1.2
timeout 500
frequency 1
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

ip sla 2
icmp-echo 172.16.1.2
timeout 500
frequency 1
ip sla schedule 2 life forever start-time now

IP sla 1 will sends icp echo to ISP 1 ip address every 1 second and IP sla 2 will send it to ISP 2

track 10 rtr 1 reachability
delay down 1 up 1
!

track 20 rtr 2 reachability
delay down 1 up 1
!

if ip sla 1 did not get icmp replay within 1 second track 10 will be considered as down ( from ISP 1) track 20 same for ISP 2

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.2 track 10
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.16.1.2 track 20

we have two default routes each one point to one of the ISP's IP address, also each staticdefault route is associated with the corresponding IP SLA track created above in this case if ISP 1 link is down the first default route will disappear from the routing table.

Hope that help

Arup,

Configuration seems to be ok it should work in your setup.after configuraing check out the below command for verifiication

#sh track

#sh ip sla mon operational-state

it will tell you the current status of the track and sla monitoring status in router.

Hope to help

All the best

Re: How configure Dual ISP failover

Hi Ganash,

i am grateful for your replying but still my router not

working.actually my network like that

1>router Fa0/0 is connected to MUX Ethernet port by CAT5 cable for ISP1

2>router Fa0/1 is connected directly to ISP2

3>now problem is when i unplug CAt5 cable manually between MUX and router

then it goes switch over to another ISP

but when fiber link (connected to MUX )is goes down then it not switch

over.

please i wait for your valuable remark

Arup,

Fiber connectivity is between where from MUX to ISP1, If yes then you should have configured ip sla track for isp1 interface ip address if it goes down then automatic switch over will do as per the configuration.
