plan for cisco and baystack router on same subnet.



Hello Expert

As a follow to the subject of type of Cisco router for the head office to branch connection

I was reviewing you response and you propose a 2811 series for head office.

>> As far as # of host now & allowing for growth at the main office, a 2811 or 2821
      will work for the main office;


Were you suggesting this router be use in conjunction with the existing Baystack router or should I replace the Baystack and use the new 2811  router?.

I am sorry I did not get to fully outline the head office setup, below is what I have in  mind  .

Outline below is my plan for head office

The Paradyne modem will be set up to allow all branch connection.
This modem will connect to propose Cisco router .
The propose Cisco router will be pug directly into the existing Nortel
Switch .
On the  Baystack router I will create a static route with a 0.0.0.0 route to the new cisco router .
On the new cisco router I will define the static routes to the respective sub branches.
The baystack router already has static routes for the 2 large branch office defined, hence
0.0.0.0 static address should not affect traffic to the 2 large branches.
I pefer to use this design  
because the Baystack router at head office is  already defined
as the default router , hence when packets are destining for any branch office
the will go to the Baystack  router which in turn will direct them to the
correct branch router.

With the plan outline above I was I thinking about a router to facilitate the  four new
branch traffic only and  more important the security of the traffic to and fro the proposed branches


This is my plan .
Please feel free to modify or suggest another less complicated method.

Thanks

Hi there...

i dont see anything wrong in this setup except for the problems you might face in managing two routers and ability of Nortel to handle to load. If that is fine... not a problem
