Activates backup servers on a LAN

Fake has been designed to switch in backup servers (especially Mail, Web and Proxy servers) on a LAN during periods of both unscheduled and scheduled down time. Fake allows you to take over the IP address (either physical or an IP alias) of another machine in the LAN by bringing up an additional interface and making use of ARP spoofing. It is designed to enable automated invocation via systems like Mon that monitor server availability. Fake can also be used in conjunction with load balancing mecanisms.
