VRRP the acronyms of Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol is a generic standard of connectivity that ensures for not loosing the data while data transmission as it works as a switching system. It means VRRP works as a back up of the router for the interrupted connectivity when master router becomes fail due to any fault.
For applying VRRP, it needs to set up two or more routers with VRRP. The user have to select 'one' router as a "Master" router and rest are the back ups. The master router continuously sends advertisement packets to the backup routers and if the advertisement packets stops, the other router becomes the master router situated next to it. As many routers are attached in the series, as many backup chances has been improved. All routers shares same "Virtual IP" address, so if one becomes failure, another replace it with the same duty. VRRP also shares the load of internet.
If all the routers in the series became failed, then there must be another sort of problem, not in the VRRP system. All the data has been lost in this misfortune incident. Search the problem and eradicate it. So this is the best way for continuous data supply within the LAN or Internet.
