Cisco How-To Tutorials The Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP) feature was integrated into Cisco IOS Software Release (15)T. There are two methods a LAN host can determine its default gateway or first-hop router. The first method uses a dynamic process such as a. GLBP is a Cisco proprietary protocol which was made available in . I’ve been following your two previous tutorials on HSRP and VRRP.

One end will send the encrypted key called hash, using MD5 to the other. The routers participating in GLBS communicate with each other through hello messages sent every 3 seconds to the multicast address But the trick here is it does not always give the same answer to that question:. For example in the topology above suppose all of the gateways have the same priority and GLBP is turned on at the same time on all gateways or they are configured with the preempt featureR4 will be elected AVG because of its highest IP address The other routers in the standby group are just sitting there watching the show, until the active router fails.

What will happen now? R2 config-keychain-key key-string test-string.

The same priority also determines the likelihood of a router becoming the virtual router master if the virtual router master fails. If the two encrypted keys are the same then authentication is approved.

If the IP address of the physical interface on a VRRP router is configured as the virtual IP address, this router will tutoiral as the virtual router master.

The static approach simplifies host configuration but also creates a single point of failure. See Tables 5 and 6 for examples. In other words, tuhorial bandwidth of standby routers is not utilized and goes waste.

So how about the Switch? Change the default GLBP load balancing behavior to using weighting. The main drawback of dynamic discovery protocols is that they require some configuration and processing on the host, which must participate in the dynamic process.

GLBP preemption is disabled by default.

The ip routing parameter will track the IP routing capability of an interface is it configured with an IP address and operational? Tables 2 and 3 show the basic commands that are required to configure GLBP between the two tutoriak shown in Figure 1. I jusyt paid for premium membership and I do not know how to get to security.

The result of this would be R2 becoming the master while R3 staying as backup, as indicated by the output of show vrrp command on R2 and R3. An example will then be shown on how these steps can be used to configure GLBP in a sample networking topology.

Well, the answer here is when the standby becomes the active it will send a gratuitous ARP reply to flush the CAM tables of the switches and the ARP cache of the hosts.

But the trick here is it does not always give the same answer to that question: If the router R1 becomes unavailable, the backup with higher priority, that is R2should assume the role of master. In this case we only have four gateways so surely they are all elected AVFs. It cannot switch to an alternate gateway even if one exists until an administrator manually re-configures the default gateway on the host. The highest priority assignment to R1 is a consequence of using the physical IP address of R1 as the virtual group IP address.


To detect a gateway failure, GLBP members communicate between each other through hello messages sent every 3 seconds to the multicast address You may disable preemption by using the no vrrp preempt command interface configuration mode.

So each client gets a different virtual MAC address for the same virtual IP address of the default gateway. These advertisements are sent, every second by default, as multicasts to the standard multicast address So the switch will learn the new port for MAC Traffic is balanced proportional to a configured weight.

Because the virtual router uses the IP address of the physical Ethernet interface of R1, R1 assumes the role of virtual router master. Because of this, a number of different technologies have been developed to provide redundancy at every point within the network. But only one member of the group is elected as the active router that forwards packets sent to the virtual IP address for the group.

Create a tracked object. As a matter of fact, we never explicitly changed the priority on R1 from the default of At the other side, the same key is also encrypted and compared with the receiving encrypted key. The expectation of full-time connectivity has certainly gotten considerably higher over the last decade. R1 config-keychain-key key-string test-string.
