Re: urgent help needed in PBR

First try to set the nexthop to a ip address on the far end of serials like Many times setting the nexthop to the interface has a issue.

From you configuration your policy routing if it worked would send all the traffic from fa 0/0 to router b over serial 0/0/0 and all traffic from fa 0/1 to the internet via serial 0/1/0. This is assuming there are no other subnets behind these ports.

If that is what you are tring to accomplish it may just be the nexthop thing.

See if you can ping internet locations from the router using a extended ping with a source of

If this does not work then the ISP is not routing your block of addresses to you correctly. If it does try to remove the policy route from the fa 0/1 and try your PC again.

Without the policy route it should now use the default route like the router did.

Re: urgent help needed in PBR

ok i will try only using the defaut route.

but is the configuration ok.


Re: urgent help needed in PBR


Im not sure why you require PBR here, why cant u just route traffic?

Does your laptop have its default gateway set to

Has your ISP gave you two IP ranges? Could be that they are not routing back to your network.



Re: urgent help needed in PBR

see in this case there are 2 routing entries required rt one is to my office B and one is to internet can u suggest me the best practise

Re: urgent help needed in PBR

on my serial .182 is there and im routing to 181 which is /30 network.

and from my .144 network 145 ive assigned to fa0/1 and tried. fa0/0 is a private range bcoz it is routing to my office B using 2 point to point leased lines.

so packets to my office b should go only to the serials with private range ip's fa0/1 i will be connecting to a firewall so that my servers traffic go to internet thats the idea behind the pbr.
