My server adress is So is there a way to tell my catalyst (or windows) that doun't use master server but use backup server. Or is there a way to tell catalyst switch that certain protocols (ftp, http) should allways send to backup router.

Is the cat 4005 doing routing (a layer 3 switch)?  Otherwise the DGW in the cat 4005 is only for management.

The question is very confusing --

Are you asking how to set up a server for internal fail over?  Internal users normally use Server-A but if server-a fails go to server-b?  Or you have to ISPs?  Router-A and Router-B and want to set up redundant internet?

I guess you should really clarify the question
