Multiple defaults routes priority ?

Hi,

 

I want to implement network with 2 default-gateway for the internet connection. one primary and a secondary route. We can configure the static route to be active only while a host respond, but i can configure that first route be the single route while the host respond ?

 

Thanks you,

 

Regards,

Re: Multiple defaults routes priority ?

I beleive the simplest way to do this is to add the both routes with different administrative distance on your core router , that will pass the data to the gateway . 
For example , 
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx   ======> Primary

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx  10  ======> Secondary 

 

I hope this is what you were looking for . 

Kind of a big deal

Re: Multiple defaults routes priority ?

Do you have the possibility to connect those two connections to a separate uplink? Because then you can just use Load Balancing features:
