MTNL && Sify - 2

Posted: Apr 06, 2007, 01:25

I've finally got almost exactly what I wanted out of the combo of MTNL and Sify. I now use MTNL as my primary connection and whenever the router overheats and bails out on me, sify kicks in. There's some minor race condition-like situations where if a site is requested while the transition is happening from sify to mtnl, all requests to that site are routed through sify. I'll probably have to strictly alternate the interfaces to resolve this -- eth2 up would lead to eth1 down and eth2 down would lead to eth1 up.

I was thinking about redundant gateways as well, but feeling too lazy to go for it...
