 Hey Guys,

I am having hell of a time coming up with a fail over mechanism for our vpn machine.
 I've done quite a bit of research with no use. The set up is pretty simple. 
Vpn client should connect to the primary server, if that one is down, it should connect to secondary server. 
And roll back to primary when that one comes back online.
Only one server is up at any time. Subnets behind the servers are the same.

I've tried to mock around with updown scrip but it just hangs, looks likey you can't execute "ipsec auto ' commands in that script....

Anything will help.
