I wonder if there is any preferred way to configure backup tunnel for the
ipsec connection with openswan.
I have over 100 offices connected to the main office through openswan
installed on routers in each place.
The main office and some of the other offices has backup internet
connections, so I'd like them, in case of failure, to switch to backup link.
Simple setup doesn't allow to exist two conn definitions with the same
On the other hand i cannot use "virtual" NATed addresses for the backup
conn, because of applications running remotely on servers in the main office
with fixed ip.
It seems this is common functionality in hardware routers, like draytek, but
i cannot configure anything similar on linux box with openswan (and klips).
Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated :)
Thank You in advance
