Source based routing on the VSP platforms

Source based routing on the VSP platforms

Source based routing on the VSP platforms


I wanted to see if anyone has done this and has any advice on it. I want to try and setup source based routing policies to route traffic out different internet connections. I'm more curious if this is possible than anything. I would like to send my data and wireless VLANS out a specific internet pipe and have my security and voice traffic follow the default path that that VSP has configured. I have a PA firewall on each internet connection that I would point to and BGP is an option as well. I know the PA can do this, but I would like to try and set it up at the VSP level and not put that decision on the PA.

Just looking for advice and recommendations.


RE: Source based routing on the VSP platforms

I don't think the VSP supports source based routing yet. Have you thought about using VRF's to do this.

create one for your data and wireless vlans with a default route through one pipe and create another for your security and voice vlans. You could then use route policys to only advertise local vlan networks between the two vrf's. You could then advertise each vrf's default route to the other one as a higher cost if one path goes down.

Thanks, I will look into that option and see if that will fit the bill.
