Next: TCP/IP Switch Up: ARP Spoofing Previous: Automation


The ARP based solution is particularly well suited to services which act as a relay. Proxies and SMTP relays fall into this category and the users should not be able to tell when the backup server is in operation. With this in mind other complimentary methods of creating redundant servers have been investigated. The use of some sort of TCP/IP switch on servers, backup or otherwise, would allow a more powerful backup scheme to be developed as content could still be sourced from servers where it is still available.
