Cisco 2811 - Dual Internet Connection - Route-Maps

Hi there,

I appreciate that this question has probably been asked before, however I didn't see one based on my particular set of circumstances.  

I have a 2811 with 2 HWIC-1ADSL-M and 2 Switch modules, HWIC-D-9ESW and a NM-16ESW.
I understand and can implement route-maps on my 1760 & 2950 combination, this isn't the issue, the issue is that the route-map policy is normally applied to the Lan side interface (from what I see normally from a switch uplink) however my 2811 has switch modules I would prefer to use than reinventing the wheel by hanging a switch off the 2811.

If someone can point me in the right direction regarding (maybe include a sample config) my problem, it would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

The switch ports will normally be connected to a VLAN interface, you can policy route traffic coming into that vlan interfce thus

access-list 100 permit ip host any
access-list 101 permit ip host any

route-map set-interface permit 10
 match ip address 101
 set interface Dialer0

route-map set-interface permit 20
 match ip address 102
 set interface Dialer1

interface vlan 1
 ip add
 ip policy route-map set-interface

for more examples
Sorry - the access lists should of course match the route map so 101 and 102 :-(

GJ Hopkins,
I am assuming that I would be applying "ip nat inside" to the Vlan Interface?

Correct, you'd need NAT access lists etc and the VLAN interface will be inside and both the dialer interfaces outisde.
