BRI backup of the WAN service

BRI backup of the WAN service

BRI backup of the WAN service

I have configured wan link between two IP403 with automatic ISDN dial backup. How can I configure second automatic ISDN dial backup in case the wan link and first backup fail?

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

How did you coonfigure automatic backyuup of the wan link?
I have only been able to manualy activate a fallback service.

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

If the 1st fails then the ISDN backup will kick in, if this fails you wont be able to have a 2nd as the ISDN will be down!

Two cans and a piece of string!

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

The idea was that a second ISDN backup call should be placed to a third site over another ISDN line if the first backup was down.

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

Yes , how did you config auto backup ?

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

If you want to automatically backup a WAN link all you need to do is put an ISDN number for the remote site in the Service that you use for the WAN connection.

I normally use a spare DDI at the remote site and create an incoming call route pointing to the RAS associated with your WAN link and dial that.

You could create a fallback service for the alternative site and manually activate it if you need to.

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service

Thanks, davemead. First backup was done like you wrote. The second backup with fallback, as you said, is the only option.

RE: BRI backup of the WAN service


Version 2.0 is going to support RIP I/II. That will even make it possible to use an standard router as to backup or the IPO as ISDN backup to another router.
