I´ve searched the archive about failover but cannot find a proper
solution for my problem.

I try to set up a failover configuration for many clients with networks
behind them.
VPN1 and VPN2 have the same configuration and are setup with DNS Round

--+---[Net1]   --+----[Net2]
  |              |
 [C1]           [C2]
  |              |
  |              |
[VPN1]         [VPN2]
  |              |
--+------+-------+----[Net3] (RIP)

The idea:
C1 connects to VPN1
VPN1 publishes Net1 to the Kernel (Of Router1)
The kernel propagates this route vis RIP to net3
Host1 also runs RIP recognize the route to net1

If C1 connects to VPN2, the same procedure happens and host1 knows the

My first idea was to build this by adding a "route" statement to CCD
file of C1.
But this is not allowed.

Is there any other idea in the world, how to build this.
BTW: It is no option to run OSPF on Net1 or Net2.
