    You can use features such as 'spanningtree' in HP switches (and most others but they may refer to it as something else). Which would help with this. Clustering will also help with this for automatic failover. I think you can also look at ISA and probably your router for more configuration options. You could also implement a round-robin in DNS but generally speaking this isn't the greatest idea.

    Also, could the manufacturer not give you specific instruction on this?

    Not so detailed. Very skimppy. The failover needs to be carried out only on fortinet where all 3 links are terminate eventhough 2 Lease Line has separte CISCO router 1941 Any suggestion for improvement. Simalarily, DMZ for our servers are facing issues too..

    If the manufacturers details are very poor then your best bet for this is to find a forum specifically about the product with users who have a high level of experience with this specific equipment. Sorry
