Next: Activation Up: ARP Spoofing Previous: ARP Spoofing


To implement a redundant server in Linux using ARP spoofing is a relatively simple task. The existing server is given a second interface such that the server can still be accessed when the backup server is in operation. This is best achieved using a second physical interface as this gives better hardware redundancy [HM98]. However in most situations using IP aliasing is quite satisfactory.
