RE: Redundant connection switching



Thanks for that but unfortunatly the situation is the latter.

In addition the customer doesnt know much about computers, nor does he wish
to :)

He knows he has 3 connections, and he would like to never be "off-air" so to
speak.

I suppose even some sort of load balancing would do the job also?

Does he want to know about and switch for a particular application
where he is talking with other specific machines? Or, does he want to
do it for general-purpose Internet access?

If the former, you might want to look into SCTP (RFC-2960), for which
<http://www.sctp.org> and <http://www.sctp.de> are good places for
in-depth information, and
<http://tdrwww.exp-math.uni-essen.de/pages/forschung/sctp_fb/> is a
reasonable places to start.
