Static Route Load Balancing

Hi Guys:

I just wanna ask how to load balance a static route.

Scenario.

* We have to WAN connections S0/0 and S0/1.

What should be my command to force a route to either of the interfaces? Can anyone give me a couple of samples to load balance a static route between a number of interfaces.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Static Route Load Balancing

You can use :

ip route x.x.x.x y.y.y.y z.z.z.z

ip route x.x.x.x y.y.y.y a.a.a.a

where x.x.x.x is the destination subnet, e.g. 0.0.0.0 for default route

where y.y.y.y is the subnet mask for x.x.x.x subnet

where a.a.a.a & z.z.z.z is the next-hop IP address of the serial links. i.e. remote end serial IP address of two serial interfaces.

By using of two equal cost static route, it will provide load-sharing function.

Hope this helps.

hi...

you can do this by confiugring the two static route with the same AD... you can do it like this

ip route x.x.x.x subnetmask interface serial0/0 (or you can use the ip address of the netxt hop)

ip route y.y.y.y subnetmask interface serial0/1 (or you can use the ip address of the netxt hop)

hope this will help you

rate this post if it helps

Hi,

Also you could use PBR to do a static Load Balance by deciding the Forwarding interface based on the Sender IP Address.
