I have hsrp configured on 2 routers (each of which has 4 Fast Ethernet interfaces). I have 4 hsrp groups configured and it works as expected.
I also have each interface tracking the state of the other 3 interfaces. Now if one interface (FE0/0) on Router1 fails the router2 interface (FE0/0) takes over as the active interface. However since Router2 is standby mode for other interfaces the packet just gets dropped !
- I want to switch all interfaces to the the other router. Is there any way to do this ?
- What if I connect a cross-over cable between the 5th interface on each routers. Then will my routing work automatically ?
Thanks for your help.
