Understanding Cisco Route-Maps used at default gateway

HI,

I'm wondering if you could enlighten me in regards to Cisco Route-Maps. I've used them many times in the past with success, but never used them to handle the default gateway. In essence, I would like two default gateways. One for 5 specific source IP's to go out one way. The second would be a catch all to send everyone else out the second gateway. Is this possible? I tried the configuration below, but had a static ip route 0.0.0.0 in the mix still and the route-maps didn't work at all. The counts did go up on the route-maps when I did a 'show ip access-list'. Also, are route maps executed in the order of their sequence number? Do you think the below will work?

*below is a excerpt of my configuration. I only included the information I thought was necessary to setup proper router maps*

interface FastEthernet0/1
description Local LAN interface
ip policy route-map external

access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.20 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.21 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.22 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.23 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.24 any
access-list 191 permit ip host any any

route-map external permit 190
 match ip address 190
 set ip next-hop 1.2.3.4

route-map external permit 191
 match ip address 191
 set ip next-hop 4.3.2.1

Thank you!

Hi,

you need to add route:

no route-map external permit 191
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 4.3.2.1


CTRL + Z

clear ip ip cef *

You are saying the route-map is executed before a static route?

So, my overall config would be:

interface FastEthernet0/1
description Local LAN interface
ip policy route-map external

access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.20 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.21 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.22 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.23 any
access-list 190 permit ip host 10.35.209.24 any

route-map external permit 190
 match ip address 190
 set ip next-hop 1.2.3.4

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 4.3.2.1
