Question about HSRP

Hello. I am a newbie to the cisco world , ut am learning alot and loving it. We have a cat 6500 series with a msfc ver. 12.1(19)E1. We just got a cat 3550 Version 12.2(25)SEB4. I would like to have a redundant LAN router setup in case the msfc dies(again). I already built a fedora router to act as a backup, but it would involve downtime. Is there a way to set up HSRP with the 3550 and the msfc? Otherwise, any other ideas that would eliminate downtime. Thanks alot, Denis

Re: Question about HSRP

Hi,

HSRP provides redundant gateway support for LAN hosts. You can enable HSRP between two or more layer 3 devices. 3550 is a layer3 switch and therefore, you can configure HSRP between the MSFC and the 3550. On the 3550 switch you need to configure layer 3 interfaces, if it's not already done, and then configure HSRP.

Here's a couple of links that you can use to understand and configure HSRP.
