How can one configure a LAN to have redundant links to a single NIC or MAC address? This would be called fault tolerant so that if one link failed the other link would still provide data. The flow would be 2 - 100BaseT links from a server to router/switch for 2 links to router/switch and to a single NIC/IP address.
Would duplicate data be sent on each link and the receiver somehow select one or would the router reconverge to the redundant link by sensing a link failure and reconverging to the backup link?
Any thoughts or literature you might refer me to so that I could understand how to do this or if it can be done?
Thanks for any tips
