HAAst will make this failover transparent to your fax clients, so you don’t have to change anything! HAAst can do this by:

  1. Moving a shared IP address between cluster nodes, so the active node can always be found at the same IP address
  2. Updating a DNS entry, so clients will always find the server at the new IP
  3. And more…(search the forums for more examples)

For example, we have customers running HylaFSP (with a HAAst based fax cluster). When the cluster fails over the HylaFSP clients automatically use the new active server (no manual intervention required).
