I have two questions. The first one regards static routes propagation under rip. I have a router that use RIP for routes and a server connected at this router by two interfaces. I want to propagate under rip those two routes to that server. But the problem is that I declare the routes permanent and with metric so that the second interface could be use only if the first one fails. The problem is when I use rip, after the command show ip route it appears just the second one and if i want to distribute to the others routes that use rip they doesn't receive that route. How do I propagate those two routes to the others routers so that they can reach the server?
The second one i regarding a gre tunnel. I have the routers and they have each one loopback. I have to create a gre tunnel between those two loopbacks and they can use only that tunnel to communicate. This is the first one:
auto tun1 iface tun1 inet static address 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.252 pre-up ip tunnel add tun1 mode gre local 184.108.40.206 remote 220.127.116.11 ttl 255 pointopoint 18.104.22.168 post-down ip tunnel del tun1
This is the second one:
auto tun2 iface tun2 inet static address 22.214.171.124 netmask 255.255.255.252 pre-up ip tunnel add tun2 mode gre local 126.96.36.199 remote 188.8.131.52 ttl 64 pointopoint 184.108.40.206 post-down ip tunnel del tun2
The problem is the the tunnel doesn't work. What could be wrong?
Those two end are loopback for routers that use rip? could that be the problem, that they communicate through quagga? How can I make them not to be propagated under rip?
