I have a project that involves automatic (alternate) server activation,
ie., if MYServer goes down, then its name is taken up by AltServer
(continually checking MYServer's status.)
I have accomplished this task for PCs but would like to know how to do it
Also, how can I configure linux to support virtual server? I would like
to have ACME.org and SMAKME.org be on one machine but behave as if they
were individual machines. So I would ftp to ACME.org and SMAKME.org
which would have their own directories.
I know I can do aliasing on the names, but that would require me to
include some path, ACME.org/acme/ and SMAKME.org/smakme/ -- kinda defeats
the purpose. Moreover, aliasing rears by machine name and not the
If you can atleast point me at sources, I would be greatful.
