Configuring 2 T1's on a 2600
Posted on 2007-11-13
I had one T1 line from qwest, I needed more bandwidth to the net so I had them drop in another T1 line. From my understanding I thought that they were going to drop in another line that would have it's own IP, so I was just going to setup another gateway and use it for the web servers, and continue using the old gateway for the users. But the way they install guy explained it is that I needed to bond/bridge the lines on the router, so really it'd really only look like 1 line, but at 3mbps. So now I have 1 IP and a block of 5, with 2 T1's. My question is how do I configure my 2600 to handle this? The 5 ip's I'm not worried about, I'm sure I can handle this once the bonding is complete.
I've read over some other solutions on here & cisco's website and gave them a shot, but with no such luck. If I configured it correctly, I should be able to run off of just 1 T1, right? And if I plugged in the 2nd T1 then the bandwidth doubles, right? Just like if one circuit were to fail...
What is the difference (while configuring an interface) between 'ppp multilink' and 'ppp bridge'? I'd assume I'm suppose to use multilink...
I'm sure I'm going to have more questions once these are answered so I'm going to make the question worth 500.
