Coming from a Network Engineering perspective, I'm interested in having my
servers be as redundant as possible. I have two NIC's in the machine, so I
would like for the "server" to be reachable over either interface.
To my mind, I would give a loopback interface an IP address that is the
"server" in this case. Then, each interface would have it's own subnet and
I would route over those two interfaces to the loopback for all packets
destined to the server. So, something like:
lo1 -> 192.168.1.1/32
ed0 -> 172.16.1.2/30 ed1 -> 172.16.1.6/30
Then, on the router, I have a route statement for 192.168.1.1/32 over the
two interface subnets.
Is this possible?
