I have two circuits one is IPLC and one more is MPLS. I need to do automatic failover on these circuits. So please help me for the configuration using tracking objects.
The details are router A's IPLC ip address is 172.27.3.157 and MPLS's ip address is 10.70.14.134. and router B's IPLC ip address is 172.27.3.158 and MPLS's ip address is 10.70.12.134. I need to configure auto failover from router A to router B. I need to reach 172.27.4.0/24 subnet from router A to router B between two circuits, IPLC will be primary and MPLS as secondary.I'm using static routing to 172.27.4.0/24 on both the circuits.
Please send the configuration with explanation of commands b'cause i'm confused and it's not working. Help me, thanks in advance
Is the 172.27.4.0/24 network been reached from Location A through multiple hops ?? Let us consider the following diag:
Loca A -----------> IPLC -----> B 172.27.4.0
----------> MPLS ------|
Where IPLC is the primary and MPLS being the backup circuits and the 172.27.4.0 network directly terminates on location B... If the IPLC circuit is a non-ethernet circuit (say T1/E1/DS3 etc), you can use floating static route.. If the IPLC goes down, the routing for 172.27.4.0 thro IPLC, is removed from the routing table, and the backup route towards MPLS comes into picture.. If IPLC comes back, then the route is put on the routing table again... You can also do this by running a routing protocol across the network, which can keep a track of the reachability to 172.27.4.0 and dynamically generate the routing table..
If the IPLC link is also ethernet, you cannot use floating static routes, since the ethernet circuit does not go down, if there is a problem on ISP's physical link.. In this case, using a routing protocol is the only option... you can run small instance of ospf or eigrp.. but the only problem i see is to run routing protocol through MPLS, which will require ISP's co-ordination....
Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..
I think Uday had a point to point L3 link through IPLC and MPLS.. Do you alwo have a point to point L3 circuit over fiber or is it a L2 trunk ?? What is MW ? Microwave or wireless ?? what kind of link is this ? L3 point to point ? Private circuit or shared bandwidth ?
In any case, if it is a private P2P link, you can use routing protocols to track the networks and make sure they are reachable end-to-end, as I have told in the previous post...
