VRRP Template

Use this template to distribute common parameters for appliances deployed with Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).


In an out-of-path deployment, one method for redirecting traffic to the EdgeConnect appliance is to configure VRRP on a common virtual interface. Possible scenarios are:

  • When no spare router port is available, a single appliance uses VRRP to peer with a router (or Layer 3 switch). This is appropriate for an out-of-path deployment in which no redundancy is needed.

  • A pair of active, redundant appliances use VRRP to share a common, virtual IP address at their site. This deployment assigns one appliance a higher priority than the other, thereby making it the Master appliance, and the other the Backup.

Field Description
Admin Options are up (enable) and down (disable).
Advertisement Timer Default is 1 second.
Authentication String Clear text password for authenticating group members.
Preemption Leave this selected/enabled so that after a failure, the appliance with the highest priority comes back online and again assumes primary responsibility.
Priority The greater the number, the higher the priority. The appliance with the higher priority is the VRRP Master.
