View Full Version : Secondary router

2006-04-03, 16:02
Hi, we're scheduled to bring a second router online for redundancy. TELCO says we have to configure BGP between routers. How do I configure Checkpoint to see secondary router in case of failover? Do I need to buy an more modules? Thanx

This is a complex issue. I recommend you to consult with you CheckPoint integrators (to get all pros and cons). BGP is not the only way to do a multihoming (and redundancy). You can also use integrated checkpoint feature "ISP Redundancy"
Also think about twat do you really mead redundancy/load balancing or both. The first is much cheaper.

P.S. Are the both routers from the same ISP?

If you're running SPlat and NG you should have the ISP redun Sergej mentioned. It is a tab under Topology in the settings page of your gateway object. Here you can define another external interface for either backup or load balancing.
