The Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) is a computer networking protocol used for automatic default gateway selection for clients on a LAN network in case the main router (Master) becomes unavailable. Another VRRP router (Backup) then assumes the role of Master; thus backing up the connection.
This page is an overview of the VRRP section of RUT240 routers.
The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUT2XX_R_00.01.12 firmware version.
The VRRP LAN configuration settings section is used to set the main settings of VRRP. Refer to the figure and table below for information on the fields contained in that section.
The Check Internet connection section is used to set the parameters that define how the router will determine whether the Internet connection is still available or not. This is done by periodically sending ICMP packets to a defined host and awaiting responses. If no response is received after a defined period of time, the connection is determined to be down, and thus the role of Master is assumed by another router in the network.
Refer to the figure and table below for information on the fields contained in the Check Internet connection section.
