Is it possible to perform HSRP with routers so that it operates in the same manner as, say, with the PIX firewall failover(i.e. In the event of a failure on router 1, router 2 assumes the standby addresses of *all* of router 1's interfaces.
The 2 routers in question will sit between a firewall's DMZ and the internet router. The outside interface of the new router is a VPN tunnel endpoint so it must remain consistant in the event of a failure.
My attempts to configure both interfaces on the router for standby leads to error messages (when configuring the 2nd interface for standby) saying there is a conflict between the existing standby ip address and the actual interface address...
Thanks in advance for any help!
Possibly the only solution is to mirror router 1's config on router 2 and move cables in the event of a failure on router 1?
