VRRP is supported in Sixnet Routers in the IndustrialPro and EnterprisePro series. To configure VRRP, select the option from the Advanced menu.
The “VRRP” menu item allows you to configure the capability of providing redundancy capabilities to each other as well as other, third party devices.
- Click on the "VRRP" menu item and the following will appear.
Enable VRRP? Specify whether you want to enable the VRRP Service on the Sixnet router. The service will be started after clicking Apply, and on each subsequent boot.
- Click on the pull down menu at the "Enable VRRP?" field.
- Click on "Yes" and the display will expand to reveal the VRRP configuration fields.
Select Internal Interface: Specify the interface the VRRP service should use for communication.
Use Virtual MAC Address? Specify whether you want to allow the VRRP service to handle virtual MAC addresses.
Enter VRRP IP Address: Specify the IP address of the virtual server.
NOTE: This value must not be currently assigned to any other network interface on the subnet. Furthermore, this value must match in any VRRP partner's configuration for redundancy to operate correctly.
Enter VRRP Group ID: Specify the ID number of the virtual server.
NOTE: This value must match in any VRRP partner's configuration for redundancy to operate correctly. Multiple VRRP Virtual interfaces can operate on the same subnet, so long as each set of redundant partners uses a different ID.
Enter VRRP Priority: Specify the priority to use in VRRP negotiations. Valid values are 1-255. (Required)
NOTE: If the SIXNET router is the “Master” device, the priority should be set higher than the “Backup” device.
Enter VRRP Peer Notification Interval (in seconds): Specify the amount of time, in seconds, between VRRP broadcast packets.
