Re: Redundent setup

Hi list,
I'd like to do the following :

   switch1                        switch2
        |                                 |I       +----| PF/Bridge|-----+ ----  Servers
N      |                |                |E      +----| PF/Bridge|-----+
T       |                                 |

Is there any (perhaps ports) software to figure out, which PF/Bridge is
alive, and if not to tell the
second to overtake ?

This is typically the thing you would do with a shell script.
You can have your redundant pf/bridge2 trying to ping
the servers through the switch1->PF/Bridge1->switch2 route,
and "takover" if the ping fail, for example.

Any comment is welcome !

Yes, shorten your signature, and write it in english :)
