My client has a requirement to setup a failover system using RIP.
The idea is that there are 2 Solaris 9 server, one of which will be production and the other standby. If one of the servers goes down, or if the one of the servers is nominated as production (in practice they want to alternate the which is the production server once a fortnight).
A working system of this senario was demoed using Cisco routers advertising a RIP address and naturally it all works well.
My question is how to implement this (if at all possible) under Solaris. I've had a quick scan through the man page for routed, but I'm a little unsure as to how to setup the server to advertise a RIP address that the clients will connect to.
Can anyone help?
