Cisco Question


Sorry to ask for advice on this Forum but the Guys on the Cisco Forum are seriously dodgey

My Wan is designed like this

Head Office:
2 x Cisco 3845 routers

Branch Office:
1 x Cisco 3745

2nd Branh Office:
1 x Cisco 3745

I have 2 x 512k Links coming from B.O, one landing on one router and the other on the Second router at H.O.

I want to load Balance those links, does anyone have any suggestions i am thinking of using Multi-chasis Multilink or a routing Protocol.

Thanks for Any Assistance - Once again sorry for asking assistance here.

can you give more detail about how these routers are connected? I assume that the internet is sitting in the middle somehow? what kind of load balancing do you wish to perform?

I get to the Internet Out of my Firewall, this is a fully private network.

All My Apps run at the Head Office where i have 2 routers, our branch office has one 512k serial link to one router and another 512k link to the second router. The routers at the Head Office are on the Same LAN

these are leased lines then? if those are point to point connections from each router then i don't see how you expect to reafch a router which is not at the other end of the leased line. am i missing something?

so as above, these are point to point connections, and so each remote site can only possibly reach a single router. You'd get a lot better connectivity and save a lot of money with a public VPN.

They are point-to-point and unfortunarely here in South Africa public VPN solutions are quite expensive, its also easier to properly control QOS issues.

Is this one branch office with two routers or two branch offices with a router each we're talking about?
