Excuse my ignorance but I am new to networking and kind of got thrown into it at my job. I believe I know the answer but for some reason my brain is not putting all the pieces together.
1 Cisco Router - New Fiber connection
1 Cable Modem - Existing Cable connection
1 CradlePoint Router
2 ASA Firewalls 5506
1 Core Switch - Connects to 1 EndPoint switch (PC/Phone/etc.)
Cisco Router to Firewall to Core Switch to EndPoint Switch
Cable Modem to CradlePoint Router to Firewall to Core Switch to EndPoint switch
We have 2 ISPs that I need to connect to a single 2540 24 port switch. I am in the process of configuring/testing out Fiber with a Firewall but the switch already has a cable ISP connection configured to it.
How can I add the 2nd network so I can test my applications and services on the network?
Once it is completed I will be using both of them as a Primary/Secondary internet connection which once again, I will need some guidance on.
If anyone could show me the direction, I would greatly appreciate it!!
Thank you in advance.
I will connect the Cable to the Cisco Router so it has both internet connections for failover.
Connect to a firewall that is setup on an Active/Standby
Firewall goes to Core Switch
How would I go about configuring this for ISP A to be primary but if it fails, goes to ISP B? Different IPs, etc.
Thinking segementing the network to include the ISP A but on an Aruba Switch, how can I state go here with X Networks but if connection fails, route to ISP B with X Networks....
Brain is fried!
I appreciate the reply but can you dumb that down for a beginner? If you can point me in a direction where I can review some documentation also, would be helpful for me. I am doing my best to learn this stuff on the fly as I work for a small company with very little IT Budget for training.
I think I have over complicated my thought process.
I setup my ASA firewall with 2 outside interfaces for ISP A and ISP B then created a static routes for both outside interfaces. I then configured monitor options for ISP A to ping an IP address every 60 seconds so once that connection is down, it should fail over to ISP B.
I should be able to keep all the normal configurations for my inside and dmz interfaces.
My next part to figure out is how do I setup my Azure ASAv to still continue to work with my on-prem ASA if we failover to ISP B.....
Getting there piece by piece though.
Glad you're getting piece by piece...as written there are two possible paths:
As far as I understand you went down the first one.
