I have an office across town that has 2 different connections to my site. One through a wireless connection, and one through a hardware connection going through the local phone company.
I would like to have both connections coming into the router with their own IP number, and then a local "gateway" ip number on the router for the users there to use for their gateway.
Right now i have Fa0/0 as set with the IP number of the gateway for that office, and have a Cisco switch plugged into that same interface, and have an IP number set on Fa0/1 where the cross-town wireless connects to it. I have a 6500 that I have routing for that subnet at the remote office to go to the ip number on Fa0/1.
What I was thinking was to have both layer 3 connections used for the different cross-town connections and then put the switch on the layer2 Ethernet connection on the wic. Each layer 3 connection would have its own ip number/subnet with a corresponding ip number on the 6500 that the connection terminates at. I could then use metrics with the IP ROUTE and give one of them a priority over the other, and when it fails I should have to run across town to move a cable.
I have done this in packet tracer, and then used VLAN1 as the local "gateway" for the remote office that everyone there can route through. The problem I'm having is that users on each side can ping the IP numbers of the remote connection (10.1.16.2/30 10.1.16.1/30 [wireless] and 10.1.16.5/30, 10.1.16.6/30 [hardwire]) but they cannot ping the remote gateway addresses of either side. I do have routes for them on the 6500 to go through, and I have a route of last resort on the remote site. Both sides with metrics pointing to its corresponding IP number on the opposite side.
Can anyone tell me if I'm missing something obvious?

Leo, Thanks for your reply. I would like to know what to do with the 20 meg download. Its not a .bin file, so I'm not sure what I need to do with it? Do I rename it to a .bin file and change my boot command to boot off of the filename: s72033-mp001-patch.122-18.SXF15 ? Thanks! -Jim Poling

I have recently gotten a 6509E, with dual Sup720's. It is currently running s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF14.bin, and I'm trying to get it to the most current level. From what I see it goes to 12.2(33)SXH5 but when I go to download the next update Release 12.2(18)SXF15, I see: s72033-mp001-patch.122-18.SXF15 What do I do with this file? It is a patch, but how do I execute it to update the current .bin file I am booting off of? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Jim Poling
