I would like to configure 2 Ethernet interfaces on the same router to be a part of the same HSRP group. I think this should not be an issue, but I have never configured HSRP before. Is this possible?
We currently are provided one CAT5 uplink to the Internet by our collocation provider. I would like to at least get one more by installing a Fast Ethernet HWIC and configure HSRP on 2 of the interfaces for that router. For right now this would provide enough redunancy that is required. Later one down the road, we can budget for a second router if that amount of redunancy is every required.
Our provider is running HSRP on their routers. I would like to run it on my end to at least provide 2 paths to our router in case a switch or interface on our end or their end dies.
