Well, the Internet is supposed to be redundant -- it was designed to survive
nuclear war, after all. I know that you can set up backup routes, but I am
not sure of the mechanics.
What I do know a little about is round-robin DNS -- it allows you to have
more than one host map to the same name. Successive requests to the DNS
server will return each host in turn. It gives some level of redundancy --
if you have two hosts, and one of them is down, every other logon attempt
HTH. Please post what you learn, as I think that as more companies become
attached to the 'net redundancy will become a bigger issue.
