VRRP but with two seperate circuits

Mon Mar 18, 2013 9:06 pm

I'm setting up two 450G's for a client right now and have them successfully setup using VRRP. Each MT has it's own separate ISP circuit.

My questions is how can I get it to failover if one of the two internet circuits go down and not necessarily the Mikrotiks going down?

Let me know if I explained correctly or not.

Regards

You can make a script that monotors if your isp gateway is reachable and if not disable the vrrp interface untill the gateway is reachable again.

First go to your vrrp interface and add a comment to it :


you can go to tools netwatch

press the + sign

as host put in your gateway public ip address .. or you can even use some sort of public reachable ip (google dns 8.8.8.8 ? )

and on the down tab put something like

:log info "gateway not reachable putting down vrrp"
/interface vrrp set [find comment="commentyouputabove"] disabled=yes

on the up tap you can put the reverse


:log info "gateway reachable putting up vrrp"
/interface vrrp set [find comment="commentyouputabove"] disabled=no

I can work with this. Thank you. I'll let you know the outcome.
