Hi ,

I have a network to reach which is It is a branch of the
company. I have currently added a route to that network via one gateway ( in following way.

ip route add via

Now, We got another gateway which is Now I want to add a
route to the same network  which is via this gateway
as well.

Then I will have 2 paths to the same network. One path should be primary and
the other path  should be backup. everything should go via primary path.

if the primary  path goes down, the backup path should be active.

That is the purpose of doing this.

Pls let me know whether it is possible or not?

if possible, How can I achieve this goal.

Thank you
