|This article describes how to configure VRRP with the link-monitor with just static routes.
The objective is for the master FortiGate (FGT-A) to actively monitor an IP (use 220.127.116.11) and in case the IP is unreachable switch to the backup FortiGate (FGT-B).
The network diagram:
The VRRP is not actively monitoring the configured IP (or subnet). The VRRP is relying just on the information on whether there is a valid route to the destination.
To actively monitor the IP the link-monitor feature will be used.
The VRRP should be used to follow the default route and the default route is kept in case the link monitor fails.
Configuration on FGT-A:
Configuration on FGT-B:
