Automatic switching of Internet connection for redundancy
Author: Joonas Kortesalmi <joneskoo ! derbian.fi> Licence: Buy me a lunch If you use this in any commercial manner, please buy me a lunch. Description ----------- Joonas likes redundancy. So Joonas, being frustrated with having even minute long downtimes on his home DSL connection after the dog had tripped on some cables, wrote a script to provide redundant connectivity. Here it is. At Joonas' setup, it monitors three connections (2x DSL, 1x 3G) and chooses the best one. When the better connection resumes after the break, it's switched back but only after 10 successful ping runs. It's a hack, not beautiful at all. It works. Let me know if you use it.
