    Hi guys,

    I'd appreciate some help with a problem I have.

    It's a web based application. So its being accessed via one IP. I need it so
    if one of these boxes at each site is down, it will redirect to the other. I
    am having a hard time figuring out how to do this simply. I could cluster
    the boxes, but, the client does not have the money. Likewise for something
    like vmware.

    I have two sites. At both sites are two windows 2003 64bit machines with
    tomcat and ms sql 2005 installed. These sites replicate to each other. They
    both run a custom application. I was going to use the basic cluster app in
    Windows 2003 to provide some simple failover. However, the problem I am
    faced with is that if the internet connection goes down, the windows box
    that hosts the clustered ip will not be available. Is there any simple way
    to re work this solution?

    Any info would be very helpful.

    - Thanks
