The topology above has two gateways that will run VRRP, R6 and R4. The host is on the LAN side,, and the Internet has a loopback of

VRRP configuration is very straightforward and similar to HSRP. I entered the preempt command and it does not show up in a show run interface. That’s because it’s on by default.

Above shows the virtual MAC VRRP is using.

The authentication is the same as HSRP, but I created a new key chain for practice. This is the same for the tracking statement. If on internet router goes down, the VRRP active member changes over.

Which shows on R4 when I shutdown the loopback interface.
