Well, when your are talking about dynamic routing this is not what HSRP
or VRRP are supposed to do. The goal of HSRP/VRRP is to provide a
"redundant default-gateway" for the hosts in a LAN segment while the
dynamic routing protocols are used beetween the routers in a network in
order to announce path and reachability information. [There may be other
definitions - but this is my short summary ]
Of course, the are VRRP-like tools available as OpenSource, eg. the
keepalived for Linux / Linux Virtual Server or the Common Address
Resolution Protocol (CARP), which is well known at *BSD systems.
