route the specific IP traffic on the backup link when primary link is alive


We have a primary WAN network as a MPLS and Backup network as a Spoke to Spoke DMVPN cloud over internet link using two seperate routers.

1. Router 1 --> EIGRP AS 1 on the LAN and BGP on WAN at MPLS

2. Router 2 --> EIGRP AS 1 on the LAN and EIGRP AS 2 on the DMVPN cloud.

The above solution is working fine when ever MPLS link goes down, the failed location DMVPN router automatically trigger the Tunnel to remaining sites and establish the link and drop the same when the MPLS link is back online.

Currently it can use as a either one of the link to talk to the remote sites.

But I want to use the both links simultaniously, like redirect the bursty traffic like http, exchange, ftp traffic via DMVPN when the MPLS link is alive.

Lets a critical traffic like voice, video, critical non bursty data traffic on the MPLS and rest of the traffic on the DMVPN cloud via Internet link.

Please someone let us know this is possible using the exisitng technologies.

Re: route the specific IP traffic on the backup link when primar

You might want to look into PBR (Policy Based Routing) to send your  http, exchange, ftp traffic.
