Need help building a config

Hey everyone,

Basically, I’m looking to use vyOS to test backups by creating an isolated network on eth1 (ip address will be production gateway), while having the router sit on the same production network. Basically, I’m trying to recreate this Timo's Techie Corner: Surebackup Network Deepdive

Any takers, I’m struggling lol!

Sounds like you want to virtual networks where you’ve restricted routing between them, but all on one interface. VyOS can do this (see: Policy — VyOS 1.3.x (equuleus) documentation and VRF — VyOS 1.3.x (equuleus) documentation).

Note VLANS and VRFs are not the same.

You could adapt the “Multiple Uplinks” example in the Policy link, only things that I see that might be different are your default gateway / static routes, and IP addressing scheme. Also are you using VyOS for DHCP? You’d want a DHCP service on each.

More details would help here…
