you might want to take a look at the ng_one2many(4) manpage. It is a module for the netgraph(4) subsystem which allows routing over several links. If you want a really cheap & dirty solution, you could simply write a script that checks if the main gateway is down and then changes the default route to your backup router. hope that helps... _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
