This project is to update the configuration on our router to send some of our traffic out of our network via our second Internet provider based on the source IP (on our network) or port.
Physical Setup: All servers are connected to one of 7 internal switches (3560-48TS-S). Each internal switch is connected to the edge switch (3560G-24TS-E). Edge switch has three bgp Internet connections.
Notes on setup:
- There are 10 primary vlans for each block of IPs that we have
- There are three internet providers
- Most traffic comes in through provider A, we prepend the as-path for providers B & C
- All traffic goes out through provider A
- Provider C is a backup in case provider A and B are down
- We use BGP
- We only receive the default route because of switch limitations
- Software version is 12.2(25)SEB1 C3560-IPSERVICES-M
- We have a cold spare edge router with software 12.2(58)SE1 C3560-IPSERVICESK9-M
Task 1 - Route some traffic out through provider B based on the source IP. Provider A has better performance, but costs a lot more than Provider B. I would like to send some lower priority traffic out through provider B. I have a few servers/IPs that have this lower priority traffic and would like to send their traffic out based on their IP address. It would be nice if this traffic used provider B by default and fails over to provider A (or C) if provider B is down, but the fail-over is not necessary. It is OK if the only route out of our network for these IPs is through provider B. The IPs will be a small subset of our IPs, probably only 6 or six out of a /24. THIS MUST BE COMPLETED TO RECEIVE ANY PAYMENT.
Task 2 - Route some traffic out through provider B based on port. I would like to send all SMTP traffic out through provider B. Again, it is OK if the only route out of our network for smtp is through provider B.
I had a Cisco Certified engineer work on this and he couldn't complete task 1. He had a solution with setting up a route-map with next-hop and adding ip policy route-map to the vlan interface. When this was implemented, traceroute from a server with one of the IPs was still routed through provider A. He suggested that it may be a problem with the switch software (old version). I upgraded our backup switch to the version he provided and duplicated the configuration, moved all cables to the backup switch and it still didn't work. Tried a few variations on the config and no luck.
I will not provide direct access to the switch, maybe a screen share app. I will provide the configuration. I will need all configuration changes that need to be made and any details for troubleshooting/testing. I can provide any diagnostic information you want.
If there is another option for achieving the same goal of sending some of our traffic out through provider B, I'm open to it. We consistently use about 100Mbps of bandwidth and burst up to 200+Mbps. The goal is to keep outbound traffic through provider A somewhere near 100Mbps. There are just a few IPs/Servers that cause the bursting and routing their traffic seems like the most likely solutions.
If you bid on this project, please send PM with a brief description of the solution that you would implement and/or what might be wrong with the current setup. The answer in the PM will indicate that you have read the full description. With out it, your bid will not be considered.
TASK 1 (OR A SOLUTIONS THAT ACHIEVES THE SAME THING), MUST BE COMPLETED TO RECEIVE ANY PAYMENT.
