Two Peplink routers can be configured in High Availibility mode using VRRP.

It is also possible to configure one Peplink router to achieve VRRP with onother router (Cisco, ...) under certain conditions.

One is configured as the Master one as the second one is configured as Slave.

Configuration is only possible locally on router (not from Incontrol).

Easiest way to access router's local configuration is through Incontrol Central Management Web Interface.
