running vrrpd daemon


I have a linux server with two interfaces eth0 & eth1.

eth0 is connected to LAN switch and eth1 is connected to internet router.

No physical IP address is binded to eth0.

Is it possible to start a vrrpd daemon by assigning a virtual ip address to interface eth0 using the following command

vrrpd -i eth0 -v 1 -p 255

Normally a "virtual" IP address requires you to have an IP address already configured for the interface.  Then the program creates an interface called eth0:0 which the virtual ip is then assigned to.
