Suppose I have a simple network connection between two computers using a switch. That would make the switch my Single Point of Failure. Both computers have 2 network cards, but can only use 1 static IP.
How can I make the switch redundant without giving the two computers extra IPs? I am asking this because I have a piece of software which can only listen to one IP..
This solution won't work, as I need extra IPs if I am correct:
What I am looking for is a setup in which one switch can fail and the other switch will continue working automatically.. Is this even possible with just 1 IP available per PC?
