The VRRP provides an automatic assignment of IP routers, using virtual routers as proxies for physical routers. An IP address acts as a gateway between the router and the Exinda appliances. The VRRP receives traffic requests and distributes them to the appliances connected to it, providing greater reliability and steady traffic request distribution.

- The request is sent to the router, where the source and destination are analyzed and compared to the policy configured on the router.
- Based on the results of the analysis, the request is:
- Sent to the Exinda appliance for optimization, and then back through the router to the requested destination.
