In “normal” routing, you have a set of routes that tell the router about how to reach certain networks. Policy routing is a way to do the same thing, but have different “paths” or routes for various types of traffic. In this article, we will explore the requirements for setting up policy routing and explain some of the concepts involved.
Policy routing is implemented in 3 parts. The first part is to define the routes and which policies will use those routes. The second part is the routing rules, which will define how the policies apply to certain traffic. The third is to define the actual policies. We’ll look at each of these individually.
The network below is the one we will use for this example.
We will assume that you already have the IP addresses set up on your router.
